“Tenderly Kept is a body of work that explores the concept of attachment. This piece investigates the belongings we preserve when former lovers leave our lives and the reasons those things are kept. In this body of work, I dive into the way that our memories connect us to inanimate objects relating to an old flame, ex-lover or almost lover. I find this subject to be fascinating due to an obsession with objects of memory; things that force us to reminisce on a certain time in our life, a certain experience or a certain person. The memories attached to the objects hold more value than the object themselves. Love letters, ticket stubs, stuffed animals, and clothing are just a few of the things that I have included in this project.” - Cahill
