"For us, the idea of having a work that has contradictions is very important—when, in affirming something, it includes itself and attacks itself. How can you put together all of these things that have nothing to do with each other? You use glue! Glue can be an idea, a word. You can use an ideological glue."
"I really love printmaking. To me, it’s endlessly fascinating. The thing that I like the most is doing hard grounds and working with needles, because the needle is always the same size. So I think I got into this thing of scratching, which is just like obsessive, repetitive motion. But it can mimic hair. And you just work really slowly; you build things up very slowly."
