Cinderella’s Delight  
Objects, Installation, Photography, Video
Verok Gnos, Jutta Hieret, Iris Kamlah, Gloria Keller

Objects, photographs and film that shows colourful, weird, and playful interpretations around the topic of ‘shoes’ from artists
Verok Gnos, Jutta Hieret, Iris Kamlah and Gloria Keller. This exhibition explores the stories, symbols, fairytales, humour and
emotions where shoes play a central role.

The exhibition is composed of objects, photographs, installations, film sequences, and a performance. It shows colourful, weird, and playful interpretations around the topic of shoes and invites the visitor to a lively exchange of ideas, and eventful encounters!

Beyond the protective function of footwear, shoes are symbols for walking, and locomotion, and open up an entire cosmos of stories, and personal experiences. We come up with the most varied ways of moving: running, rushing, sneaking, strolling, dancing, jumping, or even stomping, trampling, kicking, and marching. Even anger, rage, violence, and destruction can be expressed by shoes. We have plenty of associations - we explore new ways, we cross paths, follow the footsteps of others or have to walk in someone else‘s shoes.

Whether as a golden slipper, red shoe, worn-out dancing shoe, or boot - shoes play a central, symbolic role in various fairy tales, and stories. For example, the golden shoe plays a key role in the fairy tale „Cinderella“ by the Brothers Grimm: its phallus like shape is psychoanalytically interpreted as symbol for sexuality and the loss of virginity. Shoes symbolise passion, fetish, sensuality, and the search for perfection.

What do shoes tell us about ourselves? How and where do they carry us? And what individual stories are transported by them?

In this extraordinary exhibition the four artists face these exciting questions and thus focus on symbols, fairytales, humour and emotions.

These exhibitions are part of a series of events to celebrate Nottingham's relationship with their twin city of Karlsruhe, Germany
