Exercise #10 (Inhabiting the uninhabitable), 2018
Laboutin shoes, bean plants, 29 x 29 x 20 cm (aprox).
Laboutin is an iconic name for women’s shoes. Even though the shoes are very beautiful with their classic red sole, they are extremely expensive and very uncomfortable. I say wearing a pair of Laboutin is punishment for the feet.
I had these Laboutin shoes that I could never use, and decided that if my feet couldn’t live in them, maybe plants could. I put some dry beans between moist cotton pads and plants actually grew on them.
