We are not saying countries do not exist, they do actually exist but putting 'your' we are raising the issue of belonging, of being in control; who owns your country, who owns countries?...countries are also a construction, they are a creation, we have made them, we keep on changing them, we make the laws further but WE, I could also be saying THEY, SOME. So that's kind of all the things we want to approach. [Olafur Olaffson]
