From the 'Dementia Darnings' Series by Jenni Dutton

Embracing Change, Embracing Dementia: Part 1

Tuesday 19th September 2017 - 11:00am
77, Fortuneswell

For International Alzheimer’s Month 2017 b-side has collaborated with Agincare and Arts in Hospitals to bring you a changing exhibition of work by three artists working in sound, film and visual art that explore the condition of dementia.

19 and 20 September

Artists: Marc Yeats and Jenni Dutton

‘Forget Me Not’ by Marc Yeats is a new composition of choral work created with Choir By The Sea,  which evokes fragments of conversation, memories of place and a sense of what it is like to live with the condition. ‘Dementia Darnings’ by Jenni Dutton are a series of beautiful stitched portraits developed whilst caring for her mother. The portraits reflect the ageing process as well as the erosive effect of the illness on the individual.
