"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."
"I received a commission to create something in the art center at Harvard University- the only building Le Corbusier ever built in North America. I didn’t know what to do. Finally I decided to look at all the archives, and I found that Le Corbusier also had a problem when he was commissioned to design the building at Harvard, and that he published a book about all the negotiations he had with the institution. I found myself in a similar position, and I decided to put the two situations in parallel in a kind of satire or an ironic parable."
