I Want You But I Need To Let You Go is an ongoing collaborative exhibition by two students at Chelsea College of the Arts.
It started as a conversation about feeling overwhelmed by life. Too much information, too many social media accounts to look after, too many unread books on our shelves, too many things- physical and emotional- that we are holding onto.
We decided to look at the things that are weighing us down, think about what they mean to us, ask ourselves why we are holding onto them and confront these feelings or tell these small little stories by writing about them and putting the things on display at Chelsea. Some of the things weighing us down may be small, trivial items, others may have great sentimental value. After one week on display, we will discard each of them.
We will each display 5 things every week on a Monday, from Friday after 4pm they can be claimed by someone else. If they are not claimed by the next Monday, they will be disposed of at Chelsea.
Note to anyone claiming something: each thing will have a code associated with it, starting with the letters JUDY. Please find the post on this site pertaining to that object and post a comment about the thing that you’ve claimed.
