"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"Like this installation, a lot of my work through the years has been truly ephemeral- printing on walls, which are painted over after a show. It’s like theatre or dance. When the show is over, it’s finished. It’s gone. It only remains in the memory or in photographs. When you call, "Strike!" you stop and the installation’s finished. There are no more showings of it, and it’s gone.’"
