"The destructive effect of trauma upon narrative. A son and his mother are painting. The grandfather. Four executed, including the father – it made the news. Athens. Greek capitalists reported the story. It started in August and in two months we have selected a few paintings, enough to compile a book of 32 pages. We need to give the paintings more room. More suspension and displacement of truth. Painting together in the dinning room. At the table. The father dug a tunnel. They found the hideout. How does the collaborative painting process mimics the phenomenon of identity swapping that occurs between the Alzheimer’s recipient and the caretaker? Why is painting the assigned activity for rehabilitation? October comes after November. Do you know my son? Volume: August and September. Paintings by Joan and David Whelan."
