"The situation of contemporary art is difficult. The way we talk about it revolves almost exclusively around money and the market, it becomes tiresome. What I wish to achieve, in this kind of situation, is to open possibilities. When you're an artist, you're a bit like a Trojan horse, your presence allows you to carry out complex operations - such as a 3D scan of the entire cliff - both on a political level and on a more material level, such as security. We must not forget that Afghanistan is a country at war. However, I don't think I've made an exemplary gesture. The political question runs through my work, especially since the sculptures I made in the 2000s from press icons, The Pietà of Kosovo or The Madonna of Bentalha."
