"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’m not good at saying, ‘This is what the work is about.’ There are things very much connected to me and the time I’m living in, but I just can’t say, ‘This is about the IRA, and this is about South Africa.’ It’s as if the information comes in, goes through me, and comes out in my hands."
