red plastic shoes
the photo was given to me yesterday by reader when i was modelling in second life. she took it at the Centre Pompidou in Paris last summer.
it may just look like a plastic high heeled shoe, one which wouldn't be out of place on Barbie and a pair of which i'd be very happy to own - but its really a scuplture over eight feet tall. so high it will loom over you.
she said it struck her at a really deep emmotional level which really took her by surprise. she just stood there for ten minutes looking at the giant plastic womans high heeled shoe...
if anyone knows more about this show or artist, can they please post in comments?
