"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 guess I could've been a little bit more reckless when I was cutting it out; but, part of me was like, 'No, if you cut it in a way that it maintains its integrity, then I can use this again in some other work.'"
