Holding Myself Together, a self-portrait by Nikki Smith, represents resiliance in the face of life's challenges as everything falls apart. It features a woman's bare back held together in a self-embrace by her many hands.
This piece was inspired by the song "All Goes Wrong" by Chase & Status featuring Tom Grennan:
"Now I'm walking, now I'm walking Through the fire I'll keep burning on Well I'll hold myself together
When it all goes wrong When it all goes wrong When it all goes wrong I'll take my time I'll keep on holding on When it all goes wrong When it all goes wrong When it all goes wrong I'll pull myself together I'll keep on holding on"
