"The photographer Zhang Xuejiao was in my studio to shoot some portraits of me for a book. When she showed me the result of her work, I saw, in a series of rapid-fire images, how I was gradually becoming enveloped in the linen cloth that I was embroidering and painting - and so the idea was born to make a stage with moving puppets, like a real stage, a sculpture."
