Various Elements: On the occasion of a major retrospective at Antwerp’s M HKA, Jimmie Durham talks to Kirsty Bell about enthusiasm, itinerancy, cities, poetry and Cherokee mythology.
‘If I look at the world form the perspective of all indigenous people, what is the common denominator between us? Not that we are indigenous, not that we are closer to nature—none of these sentimental things. But the fact that we are stateless peoples. And we will always be stateless peoples.’
Alongside the interview are published five previously unseen poems by Durham, excerpted from his upcoming book Poems that Do Not Go Together.
