Jimmie Durham: Labyrinth

Fondazione Adolfo Pini

10 Apr 201829 Jun 2018

For his exhibition at Fondazione Adolfo Pini, Jimmie Durham creates a new project, specially conceived, working on the existing space and on its structures.

In particular, Durham brings out what is normally “inside” the body of an architectural object; showing its materials, revealing what hides under its coating: “viscera,” “entrails,” what has been dismissed; that is, Innards. By extension, the artist addresses the question of what is given space to and what is hidden, what is said and what is omitted. The project combines a video from 1994, “The Man Who Had A Beautiful House”, linked to an idea of living that comes before and goes beyond the walls of a building.

Jimmie Durham (born 1940, U.S.) is an intellectual, essayist and poet, as well as a visual artist; and one of the main artists of our time.
