  2. "… every corner in a house, every angle in a room, every inch of secluded space in which we like to hide, or withdraw into ourselves, is a symbol of solitude for the imagination…. An imaginary room rises up around our body, which we think well hidden when we take refuge in a corner."

  9. "You wouldn’t believe how much harder it’s getting for me to just leave my studio. It’s really sad. In fact these days the only thing that gets me outside is when I say: Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck you. Fuck me. Fuck this. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck."

  15. "Die Bilder sind zwar veranschaulichte Idee oder bildgewordene, und die Idee soll auch ablesbar sein, sowohl im Einzelbild wie im Zusammenhang, was natürlich voraussetzt, dass über Idee und Kontext sprachlich informiert wird. Das heißt aber nicht, dass sie als Illustration einer Idee fungieren, sondern die Bilder sind letztlich die Idee selbst; die sprachliche Formulierung der Idee ist auch keine Übersetzung vom Bildnerischen, sondern hat lediglich eine gewisse Ähnlichkeit mit der Meinung der Idee, ist Interpretation, wörtlich genommen Nachdenken.

    Pictures are the idea in visual or pictorial form; and the idea has to be legible, both in the individual picture and in the collective context – which presupposes, of course, that words are used to convey information about the idea and the context. However, none of this means that pictures function as illustrations of an idea: ultimately, they are the idea. Nor is the verbal formulation of the idea a translation of the visual: it simply bears a certain resemblance to the meaning of the idea. It is an interpretation, literally a reflection."
