Jim Dine by Jim Dine

Book Description

"Hi, my name is Jimmy," a crow said to the boy, Jim Dine, when his parents took him to the zoo. The two Jimmys got connected by a secret link. "Lots of things scared me when I was a little boy but this scared me and it also...I understood it." The encounter with the bird was perceived by the boy as a mixture of fear, fascination and a deeper understanding of his unconscious world. The artist later transformed his remembrance into a fascinating series of black-and-white photos. Are they symbolic, profound, mystic or just pictures of beloved animals? An everyday unspectacular bird might appear to the beholder as a character of mythology, as a jester at the medieval court, as a strange messenger of a world behind the scenes. Jim Dine speaks to the birds, and the bird answers, because they are on intimate terms.

When I was born, I came home to my grandfather's house. His name was Morris Cohen. He was my mother's father. I lived with him for three years until my parents built a small little house and we moved away. But from the time I was born until he died when I was nineteen, I either spoke to him or saw him every day.
