“I cringe at the idea of the hardworking artists. Firstly, I’m not at all diligent, I just have nothing else better to do. The sound of art being hard work just isn’t attractive at all.

The idea of being diligent and overcompensating on the effort spent on making art, feels to me a desire to expect something in exchange from art labour. It could be an exchange for the feeling of physical and mental tiredness just to get a sense of a day completely utilized. I do not feel a need of deriving usefulness and value from art. It marks my life, turns it into a story, but that’s about all I need from art.”
