Jimmie Durham: Material

HATJE CANTZ
We live in a world of our own construction, and I want to look at that strangeness in the framework of material, says artist Jimmie Durham. Taking the form of notes from a series of lectures given in Venice, Durham explores our relationship to the world through "materials"--whether concrete substances such as wood, oak, petroleum or plastics, or abstract matter such as math, prime numbers or computing. Durham's notebook affirms the idea that "our knowledge of the world comes from the way we are constructed. We construct the world as we are constructed."

Jimmie Durham: A Matter of Life and Death and SingingJimmie Durham: A Matter of Life and Death and Singing

Works 1964-2012

Published by JRP|Ringier.
Edited by Anders Kreuger. Text by Bart De Baere, Guy Brett, Jimmie Durham, Richard William Hill, Anders Kreuger.

Born in Arkansas in 1940 and based in Europe since 1994, the Cherokee Jimmie Durham has spent his life alternating between the world of contemporary art and his work as an activist for the American Native Indian movement and United Nations representative of the International Indian Treaty Council. The politics of Durham’s art also take place on the broadest terms: “My work might be considered ‘interventionist’ because it works against the two foundations of the European tradition: Belief and Architecture,” he writes. “My work is against the connection of art to architecture, to the ‘statue,’ to monumentality.” Durham’s art freely blends writing and performance, sculpture and permanence and the personal and political into series of often anthropomorphic collage-like installations. With his notion of the artist as someone who rearranges the objects of society, Durham has developed a practice of “interruption” and estrangement as a tool against belief systems and the corrosive influence of colonialist culture, mixing plastic tubing with bone, printed words with video, and witty anecdote with devastating critique. A Matter of Life and Death and Singing is generously illustrated and researched and accompanies a comprehensive retrospective at the MuHKA, Antwerp, covering his full career, with newly commissioned essays and Durham’s own writings.

Jimmie DurhamJimmie Durham

Published by Charta/Fondazione Antonio Ratti.
Edited by Anna Daneri, Giacinto Di Pietrantonio, and Roberto Pinto. Essays by Stefano Boeri, Jimmie Durham, Mario Fortunato and Cesare Pietroiusti.

Principally working with salvaged materials, Cherokee Jimmie Durham--poet, writer and visual artist--makes tongue-in-cheek assaults on the enduring colonial foundations which are firmly anchored to the base of Western culture. Durham, an activist in the American Indian movement in the 1970s, can sum up his artistic and political process in his will to “be so surgically specific it becomes universal.” This small-format, compact publication presents more than 100 images of Durham's installations, which are enhanced by a series of essays by critics and essayists on the themes surrounding his work.
