"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."
"As an atheist, I am attracted to religious art because it usually represents a hyperbolic moment like the suffering or martyrdom of a saint or...a dramatic moment in the life of Christ and a shocking image of a tortured physical body. So I look at a religious image through a secular lens."
