“ Art is a form of neurosis for the “ Me” , a contradictory neurosis which consists in escaping from confinement and seeking in the Other, the object of an almost impossible understanding. A porous border that is leaking from all sides and that we're tirelessly repairing.” (Excerpt from Beautiful Bizarre magazine’s interview)
