"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."
"Why do I have to take something from today, when my anger showed so long ago? So I cannibalize what I did then and I go on with what I’m working on. I had this idea for a number of months about what I would do next- to liberate myself from what I have done and to think about what I really want to do in the future. I thought I would take images from the ‘War Series’ (1966- 70) and pull them apart, re-do them, shove them around, and make an installation on the wall."
