|◄ ► Happy today? • Leah Higgins|
Happy today? was created following a dark, difficult period caring for a loved one with severe depression. Constantly checking; asking “Are you OK?” “How do you feel?” Driven by my need for reassurance, my fear of the unthinkable. Burying my own feelings from him. From others. From myself. Stressful, exhausting days and nights. Occasional bittersweet moments of joy followed by guilt. Gallows humour breaking through on the darkest of days.
The piece billows and pleats on the floor hiding parts, hiding layers of emotion.
