Susan Turner: Alien Hand

  • ©, Susan Turner, Alien Hand

Artist Statement:


    Alien Hand is an evocative and intimate portrait of the struggle with memory loss. Fairy tale, poetry, voice, and mysterious atmospheric sound take the viewer through an intense, emotional journey which shifts between the real and the surreal. The struggle is personalized in the artist’s father but then universalized and reflected in the confused dementia of residents in a nursing home. The artist has become a traveller both as observer and as participant in a strange and foreign landscape where language and habits must be re-interpreted to be understood.
