Vice: That’s something I was going to ask you about. I wondered if issues of mortality had anything to do with you thinking about time so much in your work.
Marina: Oh, so much work is about that. I was always thinking how every artist, in his own work, you could see the way that he’s going to die. It’s so strange.
Vice: How do you mean?
Marina: So many artists die on the toilet. But they dress them up and say they died in the studio. It’s amazing. I even studied it—how many artists died on the toilet.
