CHAUSSURES: VIVIANE LE COURTOIS

“To walk is to think, to create, to process life. In 1991, I designed my first pair of minimal string shoes to sculpt them with the movement of walking. Traveling in 41 countries with 208 pairs of shoes, I have analyzed how people everywhere in the world have preconceptions about people from what they wear. The resulting collection of used shoes is a series of sculptures that will continue as a long as I can walk. Using shoes have become a conversation starter, a collection of memories collected along the way.”

This talk will be offered on zoom, via Speedwell LIVE.

In association with PLATFORM PROJECTS/WALKS

Walking can develop pedagogical methods that may be applied to diverse groups. The paradigms that are presented show the emancipatory potential of walking and its educational possibilities.
