Since I don’t like to repeat myself…
- from an interview in Wiener, June 1980
It could actually be the representation of neurosis, I maintain that this is what it would look like if one could see neurosis. It also has a certain resemblance to the cult objects worn in Africa. Polyester, a typical fabric from here, and it’s not a cult item, but a neurosis we have here, which just about stems from the same place, I think I read that somewhere. There is, in the act of dressing or wearing such a thing, something liable for critique. Be it from the bourgeois or the art connoisseur’s point of view, one could say: “a bit of a fool”. I have completely ignored this criticality, which results in an effect that some people notice.

- from an invitation of Galerie nächst St. Stephan, March 1980
They represent a potential attempt to shape neurotic symptoms. Their function as ‘Paßstücke’, or fitting pieces, for the human body (the posture one associates with it) allows, among other things, the inversion of Leonardo da Vinci’s insight that the facial muscles, as a projection of the rest of the muscle system, give expression to the state of mental well-being (assuming I have correctly understood Bruno Gironcoli’s interpretation). Their relationship to the respective carriers lends the objects an additional dimension. I call the ‘Paßstücke’ with human bodies art.
