"For me, the notion of duration—something that is not finished, a process going on—is very important. Also it is important for me to locate these pieces out of historical time. So the time for reflection is open for the viewer and for me, both. It is a very important aspect of the work— something that is happening, that remains happening, that will still be there ... a condition that is timeless, that unfortunately repeats every day, that you cannot walk away from."
