"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for 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."
