“My passion for the cut, for cutting up, also comes from my childhood; my father loved those world fairs where the technical achievements of the present and the future were displayed. At the expositions where I accompanied my father, there were certain objects (cars, cameras) that were cut open to demonstrate how their mechanisms functioned. It’s from there that I got the idea to of cutting up unusual objects like violins and coffee grinders, and began in 1969 to show the interior of thing, the intestines of objects. The objects are cut up like words and they form hybrids, new words, new objects. “
