Smashing with a prehistoric stone tool






"Wearing a suit, Jimmie Durham sits behind a desk like a bureaucrat performing his duty: smashing things. In an orderly manner, a person goes in, delivers an object, Durham smashes it with a prehistoric stone tool - violently but impassively. He stamps and signs a piece of paper as receipt and gives it to the same person, who goes off-scene. The same order of events is repeated several times during 92 minutes. This video-performance was part of Durham’s teaching residency at Fondazione Antonio Ratti in Como, Italy, in 2004."

I love the word trouble






"I love the word trouble. It refers to everything that is not limpid, tidy. It’s a word that gets medicalised too often; a word used inappropriately by the police. And maybe we have ended up mistrusting this word – even when it refers to something from our internal selves. I want to bring the word back into favour. Unlike “indecision”, it is a term that refers to a tumult of the mind, to a state of suspension, to a sort of opacity of the real. That which is trouble merely suggests, without providing a basis for naming what is to come or what will arise. Being troubled is a state familiar to lovers. We know."
