Do you think of that when you feel lonely or sad? is a two-channel video installation by multidisciplinary artist Emily Hornum. The work’s subject is Doreen, Hornum’s Grandmother, who suffers from Alzheimer’s. While deeply personal, this exhibition is also a broader exploration of the fragility and temporality of memory that extends Hornum’s ongoing inquiry around notions of photography, new media and memory. Do you think of that when you feel lonely or sad? is recorded in a candid documentary style that draws viewers into an intimate and immersive experience. It captures the confusion, the displacement and a sense of disorientation that occurs in Alzheimer sufferers when they lose the ability to locate their memories within time and place.
