Memory Matter …

No words can describe how we can see the world without our memory. After receiving the shocking diagnosis of my father’s Alzheimer’s disease, I was aware that he has lost the ability to recognise me which is so sad to recall.  

I put myself in his shoes: I felt how important it is to stand with him and I decided to put some of my effort into understanding his feelings. I feel compelled toembrace this idea in my artwork and I shall hopefully raise awareness about our memory which is what makes us ourselves.

If Alzheimer disease were a person …

I would try to kill him …





I am trying to simulate this protein which is too much for my emotion in this light sculpture. I see Alzheimer’s as a ghost, it contains some electric waves similar to those in our brain, before Alzheimer’s, life is colourful, but eventually we might become unable to distinguish between the colours.

Light, for me, is the medium through which we can try to understand what reminiscence is. I am using light as a new provocative language to highlight some invisible and silent disease – but not doom and gloom; I want it to be a positive narrative. I do not want light to be gimmicky, it needs to be beautiful and kind of innately ephemeral and transient.

Keeping on experimenting with light makes me draw with it. I can see who I want to see, who I miss … !


  I see my mother everywhere …

I draw my father anywhere …

In this time of quarantine …

My son’s dream is to play with a balloon in the park!

It is many layers behind many layers …It is to explore how far we can delve deeper
