WITHIN Exhibition | Crowns & Owls in association with mind
Crowns & Owls is a creative collective based in London whose most recent project, Within, was released on July 18th. The project, complete with a publication and short film, was created as a contribution to MIND, a mental health charity in the UK.
Not only is Within impactful because of the fundraising proceeds that will go to MIND, but it also initiates a much-needed conversation about mental health. The project successfully displayed the abundance of experiences associated with mental health and the way in which individuals navigate these issues.
The film itself is a work of art with beautiful images and vivid metaphors. The focus is on the experience of a person struggling with their own mental health and combatting the thoughts in their mind. It is a physical journey with intensity of movement and impactful thoughts, spoken aloud.
The physical exhibit is taking place at Protein Studios and the film is posted below and on Vimeo.
