Abstract

This multimedia installation explored the elusive, protean and fragmented nature of memory. The work was created and defined through a collaboration with sufferers of dementia, a group assembled from across England. By exploring the strong or significant memories of those for whom recall will become increasingly imperfect, après-coup aims to question the affective constitution of all memory. Drawing particularly on psychoanalytic notions and debates surrounding the mutability of the still image, this work considers the degree to which perception takes on meaning retrospectively. The exhibition further reflects upon the temporality of the still image and its status as a mnemonic device.
