Suyama Space’s Newest Installation by Elisabeth Higgins O’Connor Featured in The Seattle Times

“The artist’s “heart in throat, head in hands; tongue in knots, heart on sleeve” was crafted specifically for the Belltown gallery […] The show includes nine animallike works composed of found materials including bedding from thrift stores and cardboard from boxes behind stores. Higgins O’Connnor uses the materials to explore aspects of frustration, joy and tragedy through their storytelling abilities. ‘I believe that materials have a language, like a poetic language that can be interpreted so these materials have a history, a resonance,’ Higgins O’Connor said. ‘They’ve been touched and handled and had other lives before their life with me.'”
