"Art making is a form of alchemy, in a way, because you are trying…to make gold from nothing. When it works very well is when you manage to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary."
"What is important to me is to put white on the map, create holes in the map, and bring back some myth to create a zone of no knowledge. It’s not obscurantism. It’s just to blur certitude. As in the Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym, where Poe plays with the relation between fiction and reality, if something is too amazing to be believed then you have to put it in the costume of fiction to make it believed. But doing so is a trick because the thing is not even true."
