SHOE LIBERATION ARMY TAKES OVER
Shoe designer Minna Parikka and artist Jani Leinonen collaborated on an art project filled with corporate mascots and shoes.
The duo created a space with an optical illusion covered with a print based on Jani Leinonen’s painting. The print also takes over 3 styles of Minna Parikka’s satin shoes that all have their place in the installation. ‘Here the common and tacky commercial characters collide into the luxurious and abundant high heels. The battle between the classes has began.’ the duo states.
The 3 styles of shoes are all numbered and signed in series of 25. ‘They are art and we can not control what do you do with them, frame them or wear them!’ The pairs come in sizes 36-41 and are sold through Amos Anderson during ‘Boutique’ exhibition which is officially part of Helsinki World Design Capital Year.
Boutique - Where Art Meets Fashion until 12th of November at Amos Anderson art museum, www.amosanderson.fi
