If I Get Like That Just Shoot Me
In life I believe that the perception and reality of informal care for the elderly is an ever-widening gap and my main conflict and competing force is revealing this. My work provokes notions around the difficulties and inadequacies of aged care oscillating between the personal, private, political, public and entirely self-contained. Care is not necessarily always positive or wholesome but as sometimes tedious, with mundane actions of organisation and of difficult decisions. The project brings to the forefront intersecting narratives surrounding class, privatisation and pressures on informal carers as well as the unconditional bond between Mothers and Daughters.
