Sole survivors: Art highlights domestic abuse

Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

A PROVOCATIVE exhibition to raise awareness of domestic abuse is coming to St. Mary’s Church, Carrigaline later this month as part of a national tour.

Entitled Souls Of Our Shoes - A Journey Into And Out Of Domestic Abuse, it will run during the 16 Days of Activism against Gender Violence campaign, which takes place from November 25 to December 10.

The exhibition comprises physical shoes, accompanied by comments from those who have walked away from abuse, and from those who journey with them.

Some of the comments include: ‘I love these shoes but they hurt me now’; ‘these trainers were good friends to me. I could run quickly in them’; ‘It happens to Grandmothers too’; ‘These shoes may be glamorous but my life is not’; ‘I didn’t think I could walk away; These were the shoes that kicked me’.
