The five video artists of the exhibition, Janet Biggs (USA), Ali Kazma (Turkey), mounir fatmi (Morocco), Shaun Gladwell (Australia) et Jean-Michel Pancin (France), and the poet Robert Montgomery (UK) show us in diverse ways the preeminence of the body and its strategies for remembrance.
Catalog: Janet Biggs: Echo of the Unknown - available on Amazon Janet Biggs: Echo of the Unknown is a multidimensional exhibition combining video, sound, and objects that explore the role of memory in the construction of identity. Drawing from her personal memories of the effects of Alzheimer's on family members, heroic stories of public figures coping with the disease, and research conducted with neurologists and geoscientists, Biggs raises fundamental questions about how we become-and how we lose our sense of-who we are. With essays by Janet Phelps, Barbara Polla and Jean-Philippe Rossignol. Catalog to accompany an exhibition at the Blaffer Art Museum, January-March 2015
Catalog: No Limits: Janet Biggs - available on Amazon

If Ever I Would Leave You, multimedia performance, part of the CounterCurrent 15 Festival.

Multimedia artist Janet Biggs offers a performance based on heroic individual stories of struggles with Alzheimer’s disease. Presented in collaboration with the University of Houston Blaffer Art Museum and independent curator, Janet Phelps, If Ever I Would Leave You merges the intimacy of a fleeting memory with the rigor of an optical seizure. Taking its title from one of the artist’s grandfather’s favorite songs, If Ever I Would Leave You looks at loss, desire, chaos and control in the face of a fading sense of self.
