Sculpture, 215 x 205 x 107 cm.
Materials: wood, iron, acrylic
Collection: Collection M HKA, Antwerp (Inv. no. S0307).
The work *Treff* ('Meeting') was part of the ensemble [*An Approach in Love and Fear*](http://ensembles.mhka.be/items/2514) (Documenta IX, Kassel, Germany, 1992). In that ensemble, Durham showed elements from various historical periods that enter in a dialogue with each other, that meet each other. This artwork, a drawing on a cardboard bearing the word 'Treff' is attached to a sculpture by means of two visible screws. Durham calls into question our fixed values regarding a painting: What does 'finished' mean? How's the work to be hung? What's a frame? Which is the size of the painting within the frame?
