Put your red shoes on inspired by the David Bowie music video ‘let’s dance’.(1993)
This artwork tells the story of the cautious steps immigrants take in attempting to find their feet in a foreign culture. It is a faltering search between their innate inheritance and the effort to understand the new cultural identity into which they fall.
It looks like a clumsy Dance to a very complex rhythm which is simultaneously incomprehensible and yet also essentially ecstatic.
Using my own body to disrupt a very fragile surface facilitated the creation of an eerie feeling of an almost actual presence , as well as an impression of motion and the emotional struggle of finding HOME.
