TME #32: ‘Crazy Wall – a work in progress’, Elaine Paton

Elaine is a writer, director and performer, who came to Australia from Wales in 1980 to join a theatre company. Elaine has returned to Wales over time and we have already seen in this exhibition the artistic output of one of those return journeys in her video ‘Moment(o)s Of Leaving’, set in the former Psychiatric Hospital, Whitchurch. Elaine considers her work as an artist to “live at the intersection of art and mental health.” In this work in progress, ‘Crazy Wall’, Elaine investigates connectedness, isolation and identity.
