Eddy Carroll's intensely personal exhibition 'Something to hold on to while letting go' opening last Thursday at Hand Held. Made in a period of personal upheaval,with thread and needle, these objects are both pretty and abject representing personal heartbreak as objects that can be let go of...eventually.
Objects include 'Shed Skin' a discarded heart ('you have lost nothing by trying to forgive and continuing to love'), 26 teeth ('The things I said the things I didn't say') and removable felt fingers (holding on while letting go'). The show continues until March 5th.
