10 inch elephant-dung heels, 2010

INSA retraced the footsteps Chris Ofili made over 15 years ago and sourced dung from the same family of elephants that produced the dung used in Chris's infamous paintings of the nineties. To produce these insane heels, INSA retraced the footsteps Chris Ofili made over 15 years ago and sourced dung from the same family of elephants that produced the dung used in Chris’s infamous paintings of the nineties. Using similar techniques and materials; beading, resin and painting, INSA pays homage to the style and significance of Ofili’s early work. As a nod to their shared influences, INSA's work is entitled 'Anything goes when it comes to (s)hoes...' a play on a lyric from the classic Big Daddy Kane track 'Pimpin Ain't Easy' which is referenced in numerous Chris Ofili paintings. Truly a conversational work of art.

Material: leather, elephant-dung heels and bead.
