The Shoes or no Shoes? museum in Kruishoutem, Belgium, invited me to send a pair of my working shoes to be included in their large collection of artists’ shoes from around the world.
Covering my shoes with staples, made them look like furry animal’s feet. This linked them with the theme of my earlier Silverback project. Gorillas are still being killed for their heads, hands, and feet, which are sold to in my opinion cruel collectors.
My Shoes. 2008.
Metal staples on black leather shoe, 27 x 18 cm.
