“Many artists have made Pieta but the one that has influenced me the most is Michelangelo’s Pieta. The expressions are different to the ones made by the other artists. The expressions are very rich and doesn’t make it look so sad. I wondered what it was to be embracing your dead child with a calm face. I wanted to find the answer to this in the film [Pieta in the Toilet].”
