"I still think the social function of art is that kind of negative aesthetic. Otherwise there’s no social function for it."
"It’s very difficult to say what’s poetic in my work because it’s not something ‘mathematical’. It’s not a recipe. There’s no reason to have a recipe and say that I’m going to be poetic. I never do that. It’s rarely within the form itself. It’s more in the process. If there is something poetic, it’s poetic in the procedure . . . in the way things are made."
- Pierre Huyghe
