"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."
"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.’"
