"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 was born in 1942 in a beautiful little town called Deensen, in Germany. Between 1942 and ’45 my father was a forced laborer on farms...If I were to point to something from the camps that one can see most directly in my work it is that we stayed in barracks- with raw wooden floors, walls, and ceilings. I have a feeling that that fed into my working with wood."
