"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."
"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."
