“Clinging” is a collection of stories associated with several objects retained for their sentimental value as a reminder of special times, people or moments. From a material perspective they are not very valuable, but rather useless; objects such as a note on a piece of paper, a dried flower, a peculiar stone: these pieces of memorabilia have a personal meaning, an emotional value, they are a personal treasure. It is hard to discard them because if we do we fear the loss of our memories along with them. That is why we cling to them.
