About this title:

Synopsis: "Talons d'enfer explore le riche passé culturel du talon haut ainsi que ses liens avec le pouvoir, le fantasme, la sexualité et l’identité. Des chopines vénitiennes du XVIe siècle aux créations du XXIe siècle signées Christian Louboutin, plus de cent-soixante modèles extraordinaires, contemporains ou historiques, jouent avec les possibles culturels et artistiques du talon haut, intègrent des matières innovantes ou surprenantes, et repoussent les limites de la fonctionnalité et de l’esthétique. En complément, Vertige rassemble également des instantanés, des croquis et des témoignages d’artistes accompagnant six courts-métrages créés spécialement pour l’exposition par Ghada Amer et Reza Farkhondeh, Zach Gold, Steven Klein, Nick Knight, Marilyn Minter et Rashaad Newsome. Ces œuvres explorent un ensemble de thèmes choc et pointent le pouvoir exercé par le talon haut sur l’imaginaire collectif. En outre, plusieurs créateurs représentés dans l’exposition (parmi lesquels Brian Atwood, Zaha Hadid, Pierre Hardy et Christian Louboutin), ainsi que la conservatrice en chef du Bata Shoe Museum, Elizabeth Semmelhack, nous livrent leur réflexion sur des sujets tels que leurs sources d’inspiration, leur démarche créatrice, et les significations culturelles des talons hauts. D’éblouissantes photographies et un décryptage de la culture de la mode complètent cette collection de vertigineux talons.
This gorgeous book explores the fashion world’s most coveted and iconic object―the high-heeled shoe. Killer Heels explores the rich cultural history of the high heel and its relation to power, fantasy, sexuality, and identity. More than 160 spectacular contemporary and historical shoe designs―from sixteenth-century Venetian platforms to twenty-first-century Christian Louboutins―play with the cultural and artistic possibilities of the high heel, use innovative or unexpected materials, and push the limits of functionality and beauty. Complementing the shoes are stills, sketches, and artist statements for six films specially commissioned for the exhibition from Ghada Amer and Reza Farkhondeh, Zach Gold, Steven Klein, Nick Knight, Marilyn Minter, and Rashaad Newsome that explore a range of provocative themes and demonstrate the power of the high heel in the collective imagination. In addition, several of the designers included in the exhibition (including Brian Atwood, Zaha Hadid, Pierre Hardy, and Christian Louboutin), along with Elizabeth Semmelhack, Senior Curator of the Bata Shoe Museum, contribute thoughts on topics such as their inspiration and design process, and the cultural significance of high heels. This collection of killer heels is filled with stunning photos and fashion lore."
