"At this time in my life, I’m ready to accept or own a kind of romance and melancholy or melodrama that I wasn’t ready to reveal before. It was always there in my inner life as an artist, but I was too afraid to share it."
"No Ghost Just a Shell" (collaboration with Philippe Parreno) (1999-2003)
"We bought one of the very cheapest characters and we gave it to different artists so that they could fulfill this empty shell. Different ‘authors’ speak through the character in different ways and, at the end, it’s an exhibition. So you have a film, a sculpture, a painting, and so on. What is important here is the notion of polyphony. This is a collective project and that’s what I think is important in a collective exhibition."
