Quotes[edit]

  • I don't want to delve into the past for archeological pleasure - though it could have been that - but because the past has a reality which conditions us deep down. Then if you bring it slowly to the surface, it's full of possibilities.
    • Quoted in Kristine Stiles & Peter Howard Selz: Theories and documents of contemporary art (1996) P.670
  • I don't know if I'm making myself clear, but if I were to accept this business of conceptual art I would have no reason to exist.
    • Quoted in Kristine Stiles & Peter Howard Selz: Theories and documents of contemporary art (1996) P.671
