Lost Soles

A pop-up gallery and theatre, part of the London Design Festival

14 – 22 September

Ever walked along a forest path and seen a pink stiletto in a tree? Or a ballet shoe discarded in a lay-by? Ever wondered how they got there or what happened to those that wore them?

Which lost souls do these lost soles belong to?

The Lost Soles pop-up gallery and theatre is inspired by the twitter feed @abandonedshoes, where people from all over the world post photos of lost shoes that they find in unusual places.

Part of the London Design Festival, the Lost Soles gallery showcases artwork created using shoes from established and
emerging artists from visual, graphic, illustration, textile and digital disciplines.

The Lost Soles theatre presents ten short plays inspired by a photo from the @abandonedshoes twitter feed, imagining who their wearers were and how they came to lose their soles.
