Abstract

Shoes are the most accessible and necessary item of clothing. We all wear shoes to protect our feet when walking or performing other activities: we all need shoes, we all want (new) shoes and since we were children, we all have been playing with our mum’s shoes. As objects of beauty, desire and play, shoes can make us feeling special and different, even if for a short while. Shoes, indeed, are fun: ‘they are the candy for the eyes, poetry for the feet’, says the cartoonist Mimi Pond.

This exhibition presents the work of Kobi Levi (a skillful and pioneering footwear designer) and his playful world of shoes: it shows how anything (from a coffee pot to a trolley; from a chewing-gum to a banana) can be transformed into a stylish and funny pair of shoe that can people thinking about footwear in a different, playful way.
