Intimate Conversations

I have been working for the last four years in and around Canterbury with various groups of people having different stages of dementia. I introduce the participants to various sculpture-making processes, including traditional methods using clay, papier-mâché etc., as well as the use of digital methods.  My works reflect the emotional impact of these sessions as well as the dynamic nature of the interactions. The sculptures I create are no more results of a conscious goal to achieve, they are now an intuitive outcome of what I feel in the company of my participants and of the embedded remnants in my memory. The layering of conversations and shared moments becomes a metaphor for my creations. “Intimate Conversations” is my way to share some personal moments through creation of sculptural forms.
