"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"When this piece, 'Scene of the Crime...' was at the Whitney Museum, it almost felt as if I had taken a piece of the South Bronx out of its roots and placed it in the middle of Madison Avenue, you know? And that's my relation to space. That's my relation- one of intervening, of intervention, one of somehow just the position but at the same time trying to fit in or force it into a location more than anything else...it goes against the grain. But somehow because of its spiritual qualities it flows in itself."
