The Red Shoes

More occupation than exhibition, Shaun Featherstone's practice is focus is on social (in)justice/immobility, social class and the mass communication mechanisms which inform/ entrench perceptions of these issues. Working collaboratively through the use of presentational devices, events, convivial traditions, and good humour Red Shoes will result in the creation, production and presentation of functional works/objects as the exhibition progresses.
