They Almost Fit

Jimmie Durham


Collage, 110 x 85 cm.
Materials: wood

Collection: Private Collection, Berlin.

“It may be that there are more similarities than we think in these objects”, reads the text on the upper half of this wooden panel. At first sight, They Almost Fit is a collection of various materials grouped in between them in a way that they do not exactly fit. The dialogue between these elements is created through the way the artist has placed them, giving life to otherwise meaningless pieces of objects with the aid of short narratives, metaphors, word-play and quotes from other authors and from his own artworks.
