"There’s something coming from making sculpture and making the films—and it’s about looking to flip the thing. So you might want to put Elizabeth Taylor in a pirate movie and depict it as Who’s Afraid
of Virginia Woolf, and you might insert a Bruce Nauman thing. And you might use a term like fucking it up to describe this."

-Paul McCarthy
