I'm not sure that is correct but I love that interpretation - that we artists never go out of self-portrait.
You don't just find an empty museum and say, "I should do something here.
" I was looking for another kind of venue or exhibition format. I was trying to find a site where something could happen over a long period of time - something that could slowly transform itself and the place as it went. And I was also trying to stand out of the art-world system. Strangely enough, I stumbled on vacant museum.

The symbolic ecosystem is growing without a narrative anymore. It's a physical and mental landscape.
I'm more interested in the diversity of people in New York.
I like to be lost. I like to feel like a foreigner. I like not to know everything. I'm trying not to burn the whole city. I try to consume it in slow motion.
Fear comes from the unknown. Once you know, then, whatever.
When I know who is speaking, I see that there is a commitment.
I need to know there is some commitment. I need to find an author. "I" can also be polyphonic, fictional, inhabited by a multitude of characters, be right or wrong or at fault or corrupted. But that's more "the self" than "me, me, me." It's problematic. There are times to say "we."
New York is like traveling without actually moving.
