Form takes priority over things, and flows over categories: the production of gestures is more important that the production of material things. - Nicolas Bourriaud

To search for the good and make it matter: this is the real challenge for the artist. Not simply to transform ideas or revelations into matter, but to make those revelations actually matter. - Estella Conwill Majozo
