"You know, art can be something which can really disempower people, or it can be a vehicle which can empower people."
"I’m always allergic to problem-solving because I just think it’s so Puritan. And maybe that’s a cultural thing for me. I’ve come to understand and internalize the spectator’s appraisal of the work. And one of the things that I’m ambivalent about, but don’t totally discard, is the fact that the work might seem a lot more constructed and pre-planned than it actually is."
