Footnotes: Intimate Stories of Shoes

  • London College of Fashion
  • May 9 - July 31, 2018
Sutton House
2 and 4 Homerton High Street
Hackney
London, United Kingdom

As part of London Craft Week, London College of Fashion, UAL, presents Footnotes, an exhibition of artist responses to the College’s historic shoe archive hosted at the National Trust’s Sutton House in Hackney.

 

The exhibition will, for the first time, reveal objects from London College of Fashion, UAL’s eclectic archive which includes 1930s orthopaedic footwear, silk slippers from the 1800s and even a shoe made for a sheep.

 

Artists Eelko Moorer, Ellen Sampson, Linda Brothwell and Laila Diallo have produced new works inspired by the remarkable history of the selected shoes revealing new interpretations of historic objects under the guise of five categories – Scale, Balance, Fragility, Singled Out and Common/Uncommon.

The selected shoes will form a trail through the historic east London property, which has 500 years of different period rooms, from 1530s to the 1980s, making it an ideal venue in which to chart the history of the exhibits. Included in the exhibition is a small Victorian girl’s shoe which was found under the floorboards at Sutton House dating back to its time as Eliza Temple’s School of Etiquette for Girls.

The exhibition will be open to the public at Sutton House from 9 May 2018.
