Commissioned by Sussex Partnership NHS Trust to create a permanent exhibition for Caburn Ward's shared spaces and corridors at Mill View Hospital, Hove.
Working in collaboration with mental health service users, staff and carers, drop in workshops took place on the ward followed by a series of sessions with a core group of women (who had at somepoint accessed mental health services), to develop the work of the exhibition.
The project was inspired by the assemblages and boxes of artist Joseph Cornell and particpants were asked to think about “What makes you feel positive and strong.” Participants made use of a range of found objects and materials to create their own and collaborative boxes.
Over one hundred ‘boxes’ were made which were then photographed, assembled,
collaged and processed digitally by Annis to create the final digital printed work,
