Elements and Material from my Atelier in Berlin's Grunewald Forest
Barbara Wien - Galerie und Buchhandlung für Kunstbücher, Berlin
29 April 2006 - 01 July 2006
In this exhibition Jimmie Durham showed assemblages, sculptures and objects from his studio in Grunewald in Berlin. He had been working there for a few years, in the same space which Hitler had built for Arno Breker in 1940. To some extent, the artworks reflect upon the historically loaded environment and its Nazi architecture but they are also descriptions of objects found by Durham on walks through the forest such as giant mushrooms and plastic trash as well as objects which accumulated in his studio, composing an inventory of everyday things.
