"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."
Production still from "Trenton Doyle Hancock: 'The Former and the Ladder or Ascension and a Cinchin''" (2013)
"I'm always going out and gathering different kinds of textures and materials to keep things from being so stagnant or inbred. That work has probably fifteen years worth of collage material in it."
