''For me, it's not about the money.''
The largest amount of banknotes in one specific work, I believe it’s around 3,300 in one single work. So assembling the pieces together, could be a week, could be a month.
I’ve never felt that transforming those currencies that is just packed together in somebody’s drawer, somebody’s closet, somebody’s vault and putting it out there for the world to see and for somebody to take it home… is a type of transgression. All the opposite, I think it’s, like Warhol said, ”if you have $200,000 to buy a piece of art, well just take the bloody $200,000 and just display it on the wall”. For me, it’s not about the money
