Palimpsest | 15 November - 25 January 2015
What is the meaning of the worn shoe and why is it so powerful?
An abandoned child's shoe on a pavement, a pile of shoes at a holocaust memorial, a wedding shoe worn once then packed away; why is the worn and used shoe such a resonant and poignant object? Why do images of worn shoes evoke discussions of memory and loss?
Palimpsests explores ways that shoes become vessels or records of memory and why the imprint or trace of a body demands that we re collect.
This exhibition is curated by artist and footwear designer, Ellen Sampson.
