"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."
"If I were to say how it is that I break the convention of sculpture (and I’m not sure that’s what I do or even if that’s what I want to do) it would be by climbing into the work in a way that’s highly personal, that I can claim as being mine. I have this feeling that the more mine it is, the more I’m able to break the convention. So it’s not radically erasing, with this drama, what’s been done in the more immediate past. It’s more like finding many ways into the work that feel potent psychologically, that feel potent emotionally, but only feel potent for me. And maybe that’ll overlap onto what others might or might not see."
