An older Chinese woman once showed me the result of her feet being bound as she was growing up. The slippers that she could then wear were an evolved, elegant artform but I was sobered to see how crippling it is to prioritise an aesthetic over human well-being.

This sculpture seeks to capture, very simply, the elegance of the form of the slipper. I have painted it white to signify the bloodless elitism of this priority, its lack of compassion and its denial of the beauty of the individual.
