Collecting the parts

I have looked to represent the parts of the handbag throughout this project through drawing, painting and print Рhowever, 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 Рthey 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.
