Title: Christine Borland, Craig Richardson
Published by Chisenhale, London, 1993
Texts by Ian Hunt
Paperback, black and white illustrations
Recognition will always be sought from sculpture; these beings do not hail from a self-sufficient world of ideal forms but want to be like us, to be liked, to stand in for us. Christine Borland’s works do stand in for us, sometimes literally. By shooting things (a cooperative business: the help of others is always required) and by arraying the evidence she conveys a repeated reassurance that a stand-in took the blow on our behalf. Some of the works take on the presence of a figure itself.
