Shoeglazing (SS22 Collection)
This collection of ceramic shoes was made for the exhibition Shoeglazing at Dürst Britt & Mayhew in The Hague in 2022. Some of them are single shoes, some form a pair and others a triplet. Most of them have been made from a desire of wanting to be able to wear a certain type of shoe, but being unable to due to sue size, form or budget. Some can be seen as a direct complaint to the binary gendered fashion industry and a longing to move beyond this binary in the sense of gender presentation.
Others are focusing more on the material qualities of ceramics and trying to stretch the idea of what a shoe can be. Shoes are in the end very relatable and recognizable objects, so when does something stop being a shoe when one is not limited by the practicalities of wearability.
