This odd art installation is the work of French sculptor Lili Fantozzi, a self-educated 39 year-old sculptor and actress, whose works have been exhibited in contemporary art galleries in Paris, Vienna, New York and Brussels.
“I presented a miniature version of the sculpture (a pair of Keds on eggs), which is symbolic of the dangerous road for which this country has traveled in terms of reconstruction,” Fantozzi explained in one of her interviews. At the same time, she added, the sculpture can be interpreted as portraying a “dangerous life, which is like walking on such subtle things as eggs that can collapse any time.”
Though the Georgian government decided to install the sculpture in Batumi, the idea of Keds shoes was changed into sea slippers, typical for a seaside city.
Locals in Georgia’s Black sea resort town of Batumi disapproved this art installation placed in front of the Radisson Blu Hotel.
