Paradigm for an Arch
Sculpture, 308 x 215 x 20 cm.
Materials: Pvc pipe, wood, papier maché, horn, paper, polystyrene, cloth
Collection: Collection FRAC Champagne-Ardenne, Rheims.
One of the pieces presented at the exhibition Architexture in Antwerp in 1994 was Paradigm for an Arch. It was the first time Durham would challenge the concept of the monumental arch (it later became a series with Arc de Triomphe for Personal Use), arranging pieces of wood, plastic, other materials and objects on the floor in the form of an arch. The shapes used on one side mirror the ones on the other side and each segment is labeled with a piece of paper with a name on it.
