"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."
"It’s not like one [violent] thing happens and you say, ‘Wow! That was just so terrible,’ and it will never happen again. You know it will happen again- either where you’re caught up in a system, whether a family or war...or- if you’re in a situation as I happen to be now, not involved in a violent cycle, witnessing violent situations erupt. I’m more in a witness position now. Not a direct witness. A kind of removed witness."
