"It’s not that I have found an answer, but it’s a question that still intrigues me. I suppose the first promptings or proddings to work as an artist are still there and the questions haven’t changed. One does the work and then tries to formulate a series of questions which one could possibly ask as a reason for the work. So it’s always reverse engineering in terms of the ideas."
