Ship of Fools Documentation

the vacuum cleaner

“Anticipating a major decline in my mental health but wishing to avoid admission to an acute psychiatric ward ‘Ship of Fools’, in May 2011 I opened my own asylum, wrote my own mental health act and detained myself under its rules. During this period artists and non artists visited and I made work with these people but also on my own.”

Reworked as a film that brings together documentation and story telling Ship of Fools will be presented as part of Art of the Lived Experiment.
