Miles and Miles #13: 19 pairs
Part of the series 'Miles and Miles', 2016.
In this series, called ‘Miles and Miles’, Erik lets the shoe soles weave the tapestry of all these walkers’ stories.
Most of the life we live, most of what we sense remains unseen, even to those who are dear and near. Each one of us walks his own particular path and our soles accompany us. They ‘see’ and experience as we travel. At the end of their worn life they showcase almost every trace and have embedded within them the various private emotions experienced along the way.
Material: worn shoe soles of men's work and safety shoes: acrylic, rubber and steel on linen.
Size: 100 cm x 140 cm, 17 kg.
