Tate Britain asked INSA to produce some work in response to the artist Chris Ofili.
The first piece INSA produced were a pair of 10″ platform heels made from elephant dung!

Entitled “Anything comes when it comes to (s)hoes…” these shoes were displayed alongside Chris Ofilis 2010 retrospective at Tate Britain.

To produce the heels, 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. Using similar techniques and materials; beading, resin and painting, INSA pays homage to the style and significance of Ofili’s early work.More images on the next page via Insa.
