Forgotten Memory

What is a teapot when you no longer know what a teapot is? How does a person suffering from dementia experience his or her surroundings? In Jetske Visser’s film Forgotten Memory the viewer is submerged in the world of dementia. From a desire to understand the world of people suffering from the condition, Visser created an image of their hazy, fragile and precarious existence. As a metaphor for the condition she has transformed a series of everyday objects to demonstrate that things are not always what you would expect.
