RG: But isn't this idea about 'the theatre' the approachability between us and them, the spectator and the performer? You talk about drawings in space, making two-dimensional art-making physical in three-dimensions, and the fixed perspective of seeing it.
AT: That's why I like to translate my drawings into sculptures. Making stuff stand up, stick to walls, the mechanics behind presentation and its subtleties.
RG: You construct parts of the sculpture, to be a mechanic for presentation, but then the spectator is allowed to see the 'behind the scenes', in a way, both the spaces of presentation and production. What about the swan? Did the arrow miss the swan?
AT: No, two arrows got the swan. The swan is dead.
RG: It feels like the drawing of a Greek mythological story.
