Huge Shoes Made From Dozens Of Metal Pots, Pans & Lids

huge-shoes-pots-and-pans

We’ve written about some pretty insane shoes on Bit Rebels over the years, but these have to be some of the craziest ones yet. They aren’t real shoes of course, but they are a sculpture of huge shoes. You’ll have to see the pictures to understand what I mean. If you look at the close-up images, you’ll see that these huge shoes are made out of pots, pans and lids. Aside from the obvious question of why someone would create a pair of shoes from kitchen pots and pans is the question of how someone would even get that idea in the first place. It’s beyond my comprehension for sure.

Artist Joanna Vasconcelos makes sense of it all when she explains that she created huge shoes from pots and pans to represent the gender roles in society. Women are usually the ones who do the cooking, and a beautiful woman could be represented in a perfectly put together pair of huge shoes created from pots and pans.

I’ve recently learned that in some countries around the world, tasks like cooking and other typically gender-specific domestic tasks are shared by men and women more than they are here in the States and in other countries around the world. However, in many places, those old-fashioned stigmas and roles are still usually associated with one specific gender.



This particular pair of huge shoes has traveled the world for many years and been shown in galleries around the globe. I suppose that means that each time this pair of shoes is moved, it all has to be taken apart and then constructed back together again. I think that would be a fun job. I wonder what Joanna will do with all those pots, pans and lids when she deconstructs these elegant metal shoes for the last time. You can learn more about Joanna and see more of her work on her website.

Hey there! Quick question that’s totally off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My web site looks weird when viewing from my iphone4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might be able to resolve this problem.

If you have any recommendations, please share.
Thanks!
