In the Mind’s Eye

View Project

One of the problems with mental illness is that the symptoms are often not outwardly apparent. Through this project, Penarth-based Suzie Larke attempts to transform her own personal experiences of depression into something more tangible. To create images that promote a greater understanding of the spectrum of experiences of depression. To challenge the cliché ‘head in hands’ image that is often used to depict depression by the media. To raise awareness and break through stigma.

‘In the Mind’s eye’ is funded by the Arts Council Wales, with backing from Mind Cymru, Disability Arts Wales and Time to Change.
