The new shoes by Giuseppe Zanotti tell an underground story, create an extremely poetic abstraction, invent new rhythmical "jazzy" steps, play on underground, but most of all, invent a new happy decadence. It is a new form of Symbolism, of abstract representations as it was in visual arts from 1885 to 1910. Symbolism was about avoiding objectivity in favour of the subjective, of ambiguous and powerful symbols. Primitive.
Among the artists associated in the Movement there were: Odilon Redon, Gustave Moreau, Gustav Klimt, Fernand Khnopff... The new shoes addiction is, in that sense, a very modern identification, plus an accent of happiness, of constant play, with a form of exaggerated culture. To play with the colors, with the shapes, to be amused by the abstraction. The new memory is the wake-up, the transformation of a woman who lives the 70's with a constant poetic license. The real memories are a part of the graphics, prints, volumes, but especially colors. All these elements are re-studied, re-formulated and exude a light mood less intrusive, more subdued... After all, this woman aims to be comfortable, at ease and to move with a "contemporary step".
