Sculpture, 210 x 90 x 90 cm.
Materials: wood, glass
Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. BK7723_M472).
Durham made Tower for the exhibition All That Is Solid Melts Into Air, in the framework of City visions (Mechelen, Belgium, 2009). With some wood he found nearby, he built a tower on the roof of the Mechelen Cultural Centre, in dialogue with the monumental St. Rumbold's Cathedral in Mechelen. The work matches his opposition to two major foundations of the European tradition: religion and architecture.
