‘my mother'




Christopher Sands, still, 2018


I refer to props and these props, now possibly linked to first forming a project, first meant something else. Half forgotten, they can become something else again but seem caught up in a wordy process. They remain singular props, but the work runs against an archive or against something that’s just language based. Video works against the density of texts. 


I want to say video works against the density of texts and my mother kept windows opened when she could. Her brush with tuberculosis is mentioned in the text.
