How do our individual and collective memories influence our understanding of society?

About

Lesions in the Landscape is a powerful new multi-screen installation revealing the devastating effects of amnesia on one woman and the striking parallels with the sudden evacuation of the inhabitants of St Kilda in the North Atlantic in 1930.  

The culmination of a three year research project in collaboration between the artist, neuropsychologists (Martin A. Conway and Catherine Loveday) and looking at the all-encompassing effects of amnesia on one woman, Claire, the exhibition examines the profound effect and wider implications of memory loss on identity, space and the capacity to imagine the future. 

This exhibition is produced by FACT and is supported by an Arts Award from the Wellcome Trust. With additional support from University of Kent.
