[Edit: Read Part 2 here]
Artist and designer Sebastian Errazuriz has never been one to be afraid of pushing the boundaries and his latest project entitled 12 Shoes for 12 Lovers does just that. The exhibition takes a look at the question of love and sex by reflecting on the memory of 12 previous relationships with former lovers who inspired each shoe sculpture. He’s still deep into the project, so here are the first six. We’ll share the next six in a future post.

Each sculpture is paired with personal photos and stories where Errazuriz shares details of each relationship, while at the same time opening himself up to people’s judgement. As with all his work, he, “looks to expose contradictions and absurdities that challenge everyday life precepts and address deeply-seated taboos.”
The exhibition will be on display as part of Miami Basel from December 6th – January 6th at the Melissa Pop-Up Miami, 830 Lincoln Road, Miami Beach.
Stay tuned for Part 2 that reveals the last six shoe sculptures…
