Still Life with Stone and Car

Jimmie Durham


Installation, variable dimensions.
Materials: car, stone, acrylic paint

Collection: Courtesy of the artist.

"In Sydney, for the Biennial, I did a very big stone with a car on top and my part of making the work was to go out and choose a car, go to the stone quarry and pick up a piece of stone. I painted the stone, I did something, I really am the artist. I don’t care if it looks like I’m the artist or not. It’s the action on the piece and the experience that’s interesting for me."

Produced for the Sydney Biennial 2004, now on permanent display in Sydney at the intersection of Hickson Road and Pottinger Street, Walsh Bay, Sydney, Australia.
