“For me an exhibition is never really a conclusion, it articulates something which is in process. If I show an artist’s work, it’s really about what he’s doing at the moment, within the long trajectory of his career, research, practice. And even for existing works, I really try to manifest their potential to be reinterpreted in a specific context. I want to turn exhibitions into sites of production, research, maybe exchange. It’s not only pedagogical in the traditional sense, it’s also performative.”
