Jimmie Durham – Vom Fluss
We are delighted that the column by Jimmie Durham (1940-2021) will finally be installed in the hall this fall. According to Jimmie Durham’s design It will be made from three different types of stone by Frank Lindner, Polling. “From the River”, the title of the work, also symbolizes the nearby river Ammer, whose course is formed from ‘Bahia Azul’.
“when i looked at images of the place it was easy to see that it is in a natural setting so i assumed there would be a river nearby; rivers have such hidden complexities and such symbolic meanings for us about change and movement. i thought to echo the river inside the stoa shelter.”
