JOAN JOHNSON

A loved one with dementia. The emotions swirl, the innate pursuit of evocative responses obsesses the mind. Is this person just a shell? Or are there thoughts and feelings within? In this exhibition Johnson explores the roller-coaster relationship between carer and dementia patient - a relationship torn apart by the differing brain behaviours of each participant. Will there ever be a cure? In the meantime, the determination to find a flicker of recognition or a smile conjuring memories of the person’s past, showing they are present, becomes the fundamental quest.

KATE HALLEN

For her latest solo show, Brisbane based artist Kate Hallen combines memories and histories with the fallible effects of dementia, blurring her own recollections with those of her late Grandfather, who suffered from the disease.
 
Connecting to her Norwegian heritage, Hallen explores the effect dementia has had on her understanding of her family history. A family horse, a return to the sea, and a country’s invasion are among the plethora of collected objects and memories left in his wake. These details are combined as poignant images which explore the inextricable connections between memory and identity.
