Labyrinthine recounts the story of Sven Unik-id, a Belgium conceptual visual artist and landscape designer who developed ways to manage bipolar disorder through art and creative expression as well as the ongoing support of his wife Christelle. In 2016, the book Ingewikkeld was published recounting Sven's experience as a husband, father and artist suffering from psychotic episodes brought by schizoaffective disorder.
