(The Four Extremes)

"Death, Judgment, Heaven and Hell are the Jesuits’ Four Extremes. These are the stages that must be followed to reach that state of grace in which sin, Evil, is constrained. I made my own extremes in which, through banality and repetition, sacrifice and devotion, I come to the conclusion that Evil only exists by the grace of Good, and vice versa.

Collage, montage, manipulation, indoctrination, information – these five words are for me the twentieth century in a nutshell. They are concepts that formed me as a person born in 1951. Brainwashing, information, education... I have always experienced them as the same thing. As a human being, I feel obliged to undergo all of this with my eyes wide open, to use it, to transcend it, to live with it."
