Barrière rouge, en perspective

Jimmie Durham

1996

Installation, variable dimensions.
Materials: Wood, string

Collection: Courtesy of the artist.

This work was part of the exhibition La porte de l'Europe (les bourgeois de Calais) in 1996. Calais is a city with a history of a flourishing lace industry – which then moved to Korea and other Asian countries. In some way or other, the works in the exhibition refer to this lost industry. Barrière rouge consists of found material: Durham took the base of a red coat hanger and attached a red cotton thread to it; the thread becomes thinner and thinner.
