Joanne Lyne, Angela Samata and Lisa Vint with Mark Storor.
Suicide can be a very public death, whilst simultaneously an intense private experience for those who grieve. In Chronicle One, three women reclaim this experience and give an audience public access to a private world. The Suicide Chronicles is a long-term collaborative artistic project created in St Helens, which currently has the highest suicide rates in England and Wales. The project seeks to address the lack of an effective language through which we can publicly discuss this issue.
The artworks were presented everyday in the Madlove Take Over Space. The space was open 11am-6pm, Tues-Sat, throughout November.
The Madlove Take Over space is safe, welcoming and accessible. Please find more access information and a map of the venue below.
The Suicide Chronicles are dedicated to those who have lost their lives and to those who have been affected by suicide.
