In Transit takes place over stark stages that resonate with both domestic environments and care homes. These disorienting transitional spaces are at the same time hauntingly familiar: environments in constant flux inhabited by ambiguous figures. Martha re-experiences moments of her life unfolding within her family home, from moments of personal significance to seemingly incidental memories that slowly reveal the disconnect between her perception and reality.
Lapse is a multi-screen installation focusing on a specific place: Martha’s garden; which is significant to Martha and connected to a number of personal memories shared with her daughter. Lapse uses this place and her experiences within it as a way to explore the impact Alzheimer’s has on the way she understands and remembers space and the difficulty she has separating the past and present; reality and artifice.
The work will be first exhibited in February 2018, with details to follow in the upcoming months.
