"The definition of being a modern person is to examine yourself, to reflect on yourself and to be a self-knowledgeable person."
"There is an over-emphasis on the post-colonial. There is a theory industry, and it likes to categorize, but that is not a matter for the artist. Theory can be useful if you’re an art historian but it’s not the place of the artist to do theory in that way. "
