Alzheimer's: A Quiet Story

Plouviez, Arabella Alzheimer's: A Quiet Story. [Artefact]

Item Type: Artefact


Through the confusion of Alzheimer’s disease, the everyday becomes out of reach, the immediate gets lost and the individual works hard to understand the confusion of others. This work takes a domestic environment which has been lived in for a lifetime and the medium of photography which we so often use as our memory to explore some of the ways in which our brains get lost through this illness.
The works are not overtly about the process of memory loss, but through the relationship between the images which explore the faded glory of a well loved home and the text which through the ambiguity of the single word provides a multitude of apparent meanings but also no clarity to the message, each piece challenges the viewer to experience the distance to the present that Alzheimer’s can bring.
This is a selection of 20 pieces, exhibited in Pannafoto, Jakata, Indonesia and Thessalonika, Greece, as part of the photobiennale 2013.
