“I think that for work to be ‘work’ you shouldn’t create it as work. The moment you think of creating it as ‘work’ it has already perished, the moment you say: ‘This is the work’, it’s finished.

You need to create it as a non-work. You continue to create once and again, but always thinking of not finishing. Besides art is not something you make look pretty just to be sold.

At times I feel that when you make art that is not for sale, it is like you were attacking. It seems strange, but I think that many feel attacked”
