Visual Art by Tannis Nielsen
I was invited to take part in a show curated by both Luke Parnell and Jason Jenkins. Each artist involved was given a pair of “Van” shoes to manipulate whichever way we were inclined. When I thought of the title “red runners” I thought of the things we have been running from, and then I thought also of our forced inability to run and I knew I wanted to show the shoes as being made immobile. I also wanted to show the pain of the paths that we have been forced to walk.
