"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’m an artist, and my work is not just about illustrating something; it’s also about engaging the senses. And so once people have a look and they’re sympathetic to the work, then they might start to think, “What is he doing? What’s the work about?”
