Untitled (2015) is an installation consisting of eight pairs of shoes in the artist’s size that have been cut from different shades and types of leather. Produced and exhibited on the occasion of the exhibition Two Days after Forever at the Cyprus Pavilion of the 56th Venice Biennale, this wardrobe of shoes is endowed with sentimentality. Perched on immaculate pedestals whose placement has been skilfully choreographed by the artist, these shoes have never set foot on the ground. They have no other function than to compose and reinvent the bond between the artist and the women in his family. The artist asked the women for one of their handbags, and then entrusted them to a craftsman who shaped them to his feet. A gift from one generation to the next, passing from hand to foot, from woman to man, this work illustrates the artist’s search for the right way to write history, to enhance its heritage and memorial qualities.
