Video excerpt (Original is high definition)

Multimedia artist Janet Biggs offers a performance based on heroic individual stories of struggles with Alzheimerís 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 artistís grandfatherís favorite songs, If Ever I Would Leave You looks at loss, desire, chaos and control in the face of a fading sense of self.

If Ever I Would Leave You is supported through the Innovation Grants program of the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts which is funded in part by the Houston Endowment, Inc.
