"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."
"Untitled #9 (A Decorated Chronology of Insistence and Resignation)" (1992-93)
"For me, from very early on, that attention to really fine craft was a way of temporarily transgendering. I like that feeling. I don’t know if I can explain that, but maybe it’s an enculturated transgendering- not some sort of essentialist idea of gender. In other words, I feel very liberated and free when I’m working, being dutiful and attentive to the object."
