This long form video essay on the life and work of Jimmie Durham contains footage shot on a number of different occasions over the past decade. Manzutto spent time with Durham while working in his studio or installing an exhibition, and during public conversations or seated around the dinner table in a private setting. He gathered footage in sites ranging from Berlin to Mexico City, from London to Venice. Rather than interviewing the artist, he simply shot what was happening in that moment.
Over time, the presence of the camera became so commonplace as to almost disappear, allowing for numerous candid, and completely unscripted, moments. With hours of footage now available to him, Manzutto plans to edit different durations of the film piece the video. The version on view here is the first iteration of the work, which is far longer than most viewers are able to absorb in one sitting. Non-linear and non-narrative, the film provides insights into various facets of Durham’s practice and the topics that inspire him, his thinking about materials, and the role of the artist in society - and enhances our understanding of the many chapters of his life, his political views, thoughts on religion, and his overall philosophy of life and art.
