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.
