I Put On My Rib And Collarbone
We try to repress feelings of past (traumatic) events, putting them aside to go on with our lives. These events inform our identities, they are unseen, and sometimes forgotten, yet the feelings stay with you — they mold you. Becoming an unwanted friend. A friend who tangles you within an (suffocating) cocoon of emotion. These feelings do not need to govern you. When an (un)invited reconciliation is extended it is a plea to untangle ourselves — a plea to be resilient.
This work signifies a settlement with our identity. Each composition is selected to be neutral, the sliver of space between ascending and descending. Representing the singular struggle with our emotions — an experience we all share.
