"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've seen some black folks refer to these images as black folks. I've seen and heard white folk refer to these images as black folks. And it's really disturbing. They don't say images, they don't say representations, whether grotesque or accurate or abstracted...That's troublesome because...they're images that are constructed, they're both black and white, conceived in a white mind and believed in the black mind."
