    'I was experimenting with glue outside, and by chance the wind made it dry like stalactites. It was an interesting effect but you couldn't control the process, so I thought about using a fan, which I had in my small studio. I pooled the glue on the canvas, it dried in the shape of mochi – a rice cake ... I realised that I had an organic side to my mind, un peu sensual, un peu érotique.'
