“I write down what you say. Your orders, your arguments, your witticism are the base of my material. I look for the balance of power, what strikes us in a collective way and the moment when it becomes our common lot. When I quote you – without disclosing my sources – I do it through numerous mediums. For a moment, I summon and shift power, filling myself with a collective energy, often saturated with testosterone. Thus, the group offers a raw desire. An “I don’t care” attitude, hysteria, joy, blasé expressions, kebabs: here comes the chaos, here is the show.”
