The Shittiest 10 Inch Heel EVER


London-based-fine artist and designer, INSA, was one of six artists asked by Tate Britain gallery to create a response to a recent exhibit by artist Chris Ofili (New Yorker may remember him from his paintings, “The Holy Virgin Mary,” which used elephant dung as a material and which then mayor Rudy Guiliani tried to have banned from a Brooklyn Museum exhibit). INSA responded with the 10-inch elephant-dung heels featured here.

According to the press release, “INSA retraced the footsteps Chris Ofili made over 15 years ago and sourced dung from the same family of elephants that produced the dung used in Chris’s infamous paintings of the nineties.” Wow, talk about a crazy journey and an amazing tribute!
