Mental Asylum: Meet Susanne. Meet Depression.

Mental Asylum explores personal identity in a very vulnerable place, a person's mind in the depths of mental illness. It is a recording from the first day of admission into a psychiatric hospital. The piece provides access to the struggle of the self and the very core of identity when everything seems lost.

Premiered in June 2014 at "Pixels of Identity", Palazzo Albruzzi, Venice, Italy.
