What is the importance and significance of breaking boundaries in life and art?
I think one just needs to be honest. If you are making a painting about your experience in the land and you get to your studio only to find rectangular sheets of paper – I think it is valid to ask, “does my experience fit on a flat sheet of paper with two measurements or do I need to do something else to best convey what I want?” It is not inherently important or significant to break boundaries.
Where do you see your art going?
More. The best way I can describe it is more.
You talk a lot about music, and it’s evident in your work. How important is music to your creative process, and who are your top five musicians?
I will give you five that I have been listening to in the past month, but they’re not necessarily my “top five,” because that is too difficult for me. The latest albums by all these artists are really impressive.
1) Julia Holter
2) BVDUB and Loscil
3) Tim Hecker
4) Takeshi Nishimoto
