In his artistic research, Jimmie Durham was interested in what happens “away from language”, in the relationship between forms and concepts.

Working against Western rationalism, his practice was rooted in uncertainty and paradox. Durham created artworks in an array of mediums: drawings, installations, video —which he used to document his performances,  and sculptural constructions often combined with written messages, photographs, and objects.
