Solomon Berrio-Allen
Juggle

The piece stems from an enquiry into the notions of attachment and detachment. It explores how something or someone can become our anchor and a pivotal piece of our puzzle. Losing this centre thrusts us into unfamiliar territories, forcing us to navigate new waters. We often hold onto things that are not always of service to us. Sometimes we have to let go of these anchors in order to evolve. ‘What’s lost is found’
