This artist book, created for a wider collaborative project called BookArtObject 6: LOSSED, was made while reading The Body Keeps the Score by Bessel van der Kolk (2014). This keystone text for trauma recovery resonated with my current preoccupations. My practice of printing the back of letterpress type blocks allows meaning to exist unread, and playing with words within its weighty materiality allows me to reflect on my family's history of dementia, and in particular my mother's willing relinquishment of her trauma. I now have a heightened understanding, while possibly creeping into her inheritance myself, that forgetting is not always a negative action.

Please note, this artwork is currently on exhibition at Belconnen Arts Centre and will not be available for pick-up or delivery until the exhibition has closed. Please check the Belco Arts website for exhibition dates.
