Jimmie Durham


Sculpture, 150 x 70 x 70 cm.
Materials: wood, canvas, paint, shells

Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK006913-002).

The combination of different elements , each with its specific connotation, forms one body with its base on a painter’s easel: a bust carved in wood (a self-portrait? a Jesus figure?), the easel, pieces of wood, and a painting of a Volkswagen. The unconventional way in which Jimmie Durham combines and juxtaposes them, mixing different categories of symbols and codes, creates new meaning.
