Drawing on research into autobiographical and spatial memory and the behavioural and psychological features of Alzheimer’s, Martha [Alzheimer’s Machine III] weaves together competing and intersecting narratives that present conflicting accounts of Martha’s experiences. Collectively, they examine the complex spaces autobiographical memory, account, fact and fiction that underpin conscious recollection meet.
The exhibition will open on Saturday 18 May and continue until 6 July, with a workshop and preview evening on 24 May from 7-9pm and a series of family workshops to take part in across across the summer. If you find yourself in Wigan over the summer, please come and say hello!
Martha [Alzheimer's Machine III] is kindly supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Wigan STEAM, Greater Manchester Combined Authority, Wigan Archives and Local Studies, Wigan Council and Wigan Dementia Action Alliance.
