Catalogue Note

“To create artwork is a strange system where part of it is intuition, part of it is muscle memory, and part of it is curiosity. You’re constantly weaving these things across each other, and that creates the path for experimentation, or trying to create a new language within a work.”

Doug Aitken cited in: Emerson Rosenthal, ‘Experience Now: A Conversation with Doug Aitken’, Vice, online.
