Still Lives: Between Creativity and Shadowland

Still Lives: Between Creativity and Shadowland

Still Lives: Between Creativity and Shadowland explores the personal, social and clinical dimensions of depression and mania through the artworks of those suffering from these conditions.

These selected works highlight the subjective experiences of these extreme mood states. The exhibition does not focus only on the ‘gloomy’ side of mental illness.  Artworks that show recovery from these pathological states are included.  Most importantly, many of these works demonstrate the creativity of people who have mental illness.
