Miguel Fernadez de Castro | Grammar of Gates (2019)

© Miguel Fernández de Castro, Grammar of Gates Gramática de las puertas, 2019 optimised

(20:32 minutes) Selected by Ballroom Marfa, Texas


Miguel Fernández de Castro’s video is a dynamic visual and aural collage
that traces the overlapping territories, languages, and conflicts that mark
the border between Mexico and the U.S. within the sovereign Tohono
O’odham Nation. The artist weaves together excerpts from the 1970 movie
‘Geronimo Jones’ with drone and surveillance-like imagery of the landscape
and an affectless recitation of phrases out of ‘A Practical Spanish Grammar
for Border Patrol Officers’.
