Gillick speaks of this collaboration and like mindedness with Pringle head designer Alistair Carr, saying: "We are both products of the British art school system. There is a common language that we share. And a strong sense of skepticism and enthusiasm... "It (the work for Pringle) is part of my art – not an exercise in transferring value from one discipline to another. I am not trying to elevate or reduce a bag to the status of a contemporary art object – I am an artist working who is interested in expanding my vocabulary. Art and fashion will never be aligned and they should not be. I want areas to clash and cause problems by feeding off each other and multiplying mis-readings." (via AnOther)
