Some Memories About Memory
by Devon Kerslake

After working in the locked Alzheimers wing of a long term care home, Kerslake started using ink drawings to examine the memories that lingered from that time; memories that she could not shake. In Some Memories About Memory she uses a blend of text and imagery to pursue her own fading memories by collecting and presenting the remnants of a life lived and the impossible glimmers of recognition that persisted for her residents: a child’s name and age, an address, a coffee order, a recipe or a melody. These artworks were assembled as a love letter to those she had lost and to the loss that had surrounded them.
