2019 Finalists

Anne MOFFAT

Artist statement: My grandmother is a dragon. A token of authority, dignity, honour and success. At 90 years of age she is mother to eight, grandmother to 18, great-grandmother to ten and counting – and a sufferer of late-stage Alzheimer's disease.

Forget me not (2015– ) portrays my experience over consequent trips to visit my maternal grandmother Kong Fung Tsze in Sandakan, Malaysia; a process of trying to understand more of who I am and who she is, while watching her lose her independence and sense of self.

Documenting both my grandmother and the continuations of life outside her room, I explore the disorientating, challenging and repetitive nature of the condition, and the feelings that arise from watching the slow decline of a life of someone you cherish.

In loving memory of my grandmother Kong Fung Tsze 1928–2019.
