I have looked to represent the parts of the handbag throughout this project through drawing, painting and print – however, now I am considering the strength of actually displaying the pieces as objects in their own right. Conceptually I feel this is a strong direction to take, as this dismantled handbag acts quite successfully as a metaphor for the destruction of identity associated with the development of dementia. The objects offer an interesting presence when separated from one another but still grouped together – they retain their existence as objects and still seem to offer a sort of collective essence but are no longer either functional or in anyway serve the purpose they were intended too. Something which I feel certainly draws parallel to dementia. I would like to consider taking this idea of a collection of handbag parts, further into some sort of installation piece.
