Love is a Bitch

Joyce de Gruiter

Part of the lace shoe sculptures, 2014.
Unique piece.

A woman rejected in love can be very dangerous and nasty, love and hate are closed together.
The softness of the lace turned into hard surface with the knife ready to cut, gives a strong erotic feeling.

Heaven has no rage, like love to hatred turned,
Nor Hell a fury, like a woman scorned.
William Congreve (1670-1729)

Material: red lace, knife.

Size: 32 (h) x 20 (d) x 8 (w) cm.
