SHOEting Lipstick


Red Shoes Installation, 2017.

The artist, as a very young child, had a great inclination to self-satisfaction without knowing what she was doing. It happened in great innocence, but very often. Several times a day, she had a recurring dream: she became abducted by Aquarius and locked under water in a golden cage. The water was beautifully turquoise and the golden cage was pleasant. She was regularly visited by Aquarius, who always had a huge red lipstick with which he painted her lips every time. It made her feel good.

Later, as a student, she could take a few pieces from the perfumery decorations back to her studio, including two oversized, red lipsticks by Chanel. She created an art object that now travels the world.
