"There is a main concern in my work which is not politics or anthropology, economy or other kinds of big issues or techniques. The concern is art, poetics, soul, tradition, and language and my being within those terms. [The materials] are already impregnated by meanings, like shopping bags, banknotes, brochures, cigarette packs, and envelopes. My main approach to these materials is putting together what is shattered all over."
