Birth of Freedom

Metal

Statement

“Parto a la libertad” recycles an already common icon in my work: a woman’s shoe – in this case in monumental size in order to turn it into an interactive slide such as the ones frequently found in children’s playgrounds. This high-heel shoe not only articulates its inherent interpretations associated with glamour, fashion, consumption and comfort, but enables the association of the travel from one state to the other, using to the metaphor of the birth channel through which we all travel when coming into the world.
