"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."
"Since this work was about mourning, I wanted to emphasize a kind of prayerful looking up- looking up to heaven or God knows what- looking down- in a gallery with very tall rooms. I decided that it should be on the ground, like a funeral procession. And I decided that was what I wanted to do in ‘Cri du Coeur.’"
