Giant Shoes Made Of Pots & Pans
By Dorothy Tan, 13 Nov 2012
Paris-born, Lisbon-based artist Joana Vasconcelos constructs humongous replicas of fashionable high-heel shoes from shiny pots and pans.
This visually arresting, larger-than-life sculptural installation series—aptly entitled ‘Shoes’—have showed all over the world, including Seoul and the Château de Versailles.
Much more than just stunning ornaments, these giant shoes make a powerful statement about women’s persisting traditional roles in modern society and symbolizes the dichotomous private-public life that many women lead today.
