Мой дорогой друг. (My dear friend.)


It is hopelessness even more than pain that crushes the soul.
William Styron

Getting people to talk about mental illness is not always easy. Мой дорогой друг, (My dear friend,) is a collection of story fragments that examines and questions the treatment of mental illness. The installation invites you to participate and continue the narrative by sharing your own stories.
