"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."
"When I started making the Hummels, I would talk about it as taking a mass-produced object and making a one-off of it—taking low art (mass-produced sculpture) and pushing it back into high art. But what’s also going on with the Hummels is the nature of the sculpture itself—that they’re sculptures of children."
