DROP DEAD! (CREPA!)

profile pictureMARINA PROFUMO

It represents our modern mentality of imposition. Nowadays everybody tramples on everybody to reach their goal. We can see this behaviour in our society at any level, from individuals to the government. This sculpture is part of ”the shoes with a brain inside” that’s the representation of a person in full possession of his/her faculties but who behaves foolishly. The brain is inside a shoe: it is not where it should work. In Italy, we have the idiom ”to reason with one\'s feet” (\"to talk nonsense\") when a person behaves foolishly: the idea of this kind of works came from this expression.
