39,5 < 27 White

Irene Andessner

A size 39 high-heeled shoe made from pure chocolate was created in 1993 as Irene Andessners contribution to the exhibition ‘Die verlassenen Schuhe’ (The abandoned shoes) in the Rheinischen Landesmuseum (Rhineland State Museum), Bonn. Here the shoe runs in a video (plot: man eating a shoe from the foot of a woman). The object will be freshly cast to order from the type of chocolate chosen (milk, plain or white chocolate). The ’27 degrees’ signifies the melting point of chocolate; the edible shoe can be stored at room temperature without any problems. Varnished or sprayed, it is endlessly edible – with the eyes.
