Abstract

Two screen video installation. Duration: 35 mins

Claire can no longer remember much of her past, form new memories or recognise faces (not even her own). Working with Claire, Time Present, explores the very different shape of Claire’s world, and the maps and lists that Claire creates in order to structure her thinking and to ground her in time and space. This two screen installation, explores the dynamic role memory plays in enabling us to move through time and space, and the impact of individual and cultural amnesia. It reveals the daily feat of creativity, determination and commitment that Claire, undertakes against the odds, in order to give meaning and shape to her world and to maintain connections to her past, her future, her identity and to those that are important in her life. The work is part of a body of work informed by dialogue with neuropsychologists Martin A. Conway and Catherine Loveday, that explores the impact of individual and cultural amnesia.
