Suggested Proposal for a New Architecture n°1

Jimmie Durham


Sculpture, 70 x 8 x 8 cm.
Materials: Stone, wood

Collection: Courtesy of the artist and Galleria Franco Soffiantino, Turin.

These proposals were first exhibited at the exhibition Le ragioni della leggerezza at Galleria Franco Soffiantino in 2004. Durham combines fragments of wooden furniture with stone and text and turns them into new objects. The lightness of the work is striking: Durham's proposal is diametrically opposed to the heavy monumentality of Western architecture. From the mid-1990s on, he takes astand against architecture and monumentality, seen as expressions of state power.
