Liverpool Exhibition Reveals the Devastating Effects of Amnesia on Woman
Most of the diseases involve common signs such as pain, fever, numbness, drowsiness, or any other sensation and the medical science is able to assess them and treat them well.

However, it is still a complicated process to assess the feelings of people with some conditions like amnesia.

Artist Shona Illingworth worked with neuropsychologist Catherine Loveday and Professor Martin Conway, head of psychology at City University London, to study the behavior of a woman with amnesia.


Illingworth isnow running an exhibition called Lesions in the Landscape at FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) in Liverpool, UK. The powerful new multi-screen installation depicts the life of a woman namedClairewho has amnesia and lives her life without any memories of the past.

Illingworth was born in Denmark in 1966 and brought up in the Highlands of Scotland. She trained at Goldsmith's and is now based in London. Her work has been exhibited widely, including at the Museum of Modern Art, Bologna and the Wellcome Collection, London.
