“…I hate the idea of having any kind of responsibility, that’s why I became an artist. So if anything, I want to do things that are irresponsible and wrong and absurd and kind of stupid as well…I hate the idea that artists are special as well. People you hear it from most, are from very wealthy right wing collectors, who tell you how special you are and how you are going to change the world, even though they probably have the power to do it much more than you do…I don’t want to be seen in those respects. Artist are just as stupid as everyone else really, but they are just lucky because they can do whatever they want…”
