Me and my mom are very close. A sudden herniated disc made us even closer. The back pain was so terrible she couldn’t walk on her own for almost a year. Our roles started to change. I became the caretaker and she was more and more dependent on me. We started to process our fears of pain and helplessness. In the video Temporarily Out of Order she practices her physical therapy exercises on a stage wearing a tutu. She appears very cute and amusing but at the same time one can relate to her constant pain through the slow, clumsy repetition. Working together gives us both a chance to reflect different feelings having to do with us growing older as women, fear of changes in one’s identity and fear of loss and of responsibility that comes with all of the above.
