Artists Jim Darling and Revok recently collaborated on this found object art installation in an abandoned church in the heart of Detroit. Working on the piece for two days, the artists dragged an organ up two flights of stairs along with any other pieces of debris in the vicinity they could use to assemble the infinity symbol shown here.

“When we started this there wasn’t a plan at all. We drove around for a few days just looking at everything. He took me everywhere in Detroit. The church we picked was one of the buildings we looked at on the first or second day of my trip. There were a lot of great elements to work with and the building was amazing. It took us about two and a half exhausting days to complete.” – Jim Darling

“It actually came together much faster than a typical “mural wall” or a piece I create in the studio, however it was much more physically laborious, which was really good! I remember carrying a giant organ and a piano up two narrow flights of stairs from the basement. Jim and I decided it would be most satisfying to create the installation only from objects and materials we could scavenge from the site itself. The church is massive so we carried all kinds of big heavy shit and swept 2 inches of dirt from the entire floor where the installation was created.” – Revok

This RUN comes signed, numbered and with a Certificate of Authenticity from Jim Darling, Revok and 1xRUN.

SUNDAY MASS WITH REVOK & JIM DARLING

April 28 2012 . 07:02pm

 

I first met JIM DARLING a few years ago in Miami when we were showing together in a group show. Jim is a super nice guy and his work blew me away and we stayed in contact every since… Jim recently visited me here in Detroit and we finally got to collaborate on something together… After cruising around for a bit we found this massive dead church and spent two days creating this really large installation inside using only materials already inside the church. It was fucking exhausting labor but well worth it since we had such a blast doing it.

We ended up carrying a massive organ up two flights of stairs, a piano, a TV, and a ton of other random shit to erect this gigantic monument.
