When someone disappears, who becomes the custodian of our experience?
Created by Eliza Scott, an artist working across performance, drag, sound and film, pollon is an interdisciplinary piece that explores resilience, memory and how we interpret our surroundings.
Formulated with music, anecdotes and interviews with people who have experienced dementia and/or Alzheimer’s, pollon uses pre-recorded audio (including dialogue, songs and instructions) to connect participants to the memories we may have left behind.
This work investigates the lost ritual of memory.
If our realities are being split into keepsakes, how do we continue to associate ourselves with who we are?
