"You know, art can be something which can really disempower people, or it can be a vehicle which can empower people."
"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. "
