"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 also working on more fragmented pieces- of body parts that sprout from mounds, that have on tube socks or sneakers. They’re not obviously attached to any body that we would recognize as a body. I’m also still very interested in looking at those structures and that way of dealing with the figure as part of this larger conglomerate."
