Approach in Love and Fear
Approach in Love and Fear is the title of the installation presented by Jimmie Durham at Documenta IX in 1992, installed at the ground floor of the Fridericianum in Kassel, Germany. Its central pieces were Durham’s Jesus figure and Treff, setting the tone for all the other smaller pieces located in the space around it (see linked items ). Outside, other pieces located around a nearby park completed the ensemble, such as the long PVC tube emerging from the waters of the river Aue and two stones displayed side-by-side, one labeled as “from the mountain” and the other “from the Red Palace”.
