"There could be a point where they stop, where they are finished or at least I’m moving on from them.
But I view exhibitions sometimes as not the end of something but a beginning. It’s like you see the pieces for the first time, or you see them out of their context, and you can think about them differently. Then you start again. The exhibition is not the end of the piece."

-Paul McCarthy
