Shoes, after Vincent (or, Vincent’s Vans)
DescriptionShoes, after Vincent (or, Vincent’s Vans) – In the first series of an ongoing relationship with the ordinary and everyday objects in our shared or isolated lives, I’m encouraging interaction with some of the objects that define me as an individual. These are the things that I might reach for in different times of my day yet do so automatically, without much thought. For example, ‘Maldon Sea Salt’ goes on pretty much everything I eat which, when given further analysis, acts in some way as my maintained and physical connection to Europe – the salt from the sea is an essential part of my physicality.
‘Shoes, after Vincent (or, Vincent’s Vans)’ – Vans are the only shoe I wear. Period. And so I wanted to feature them as one of my quotidian on the basis that I’ve walked many miles in Vans.
