Douglas Gordon crosses a boot and an evening glove to create a monstrous object putting its user in an ambivalently unorthodox position. The artist will spend the evening on 21st October from 6pm to 9pm with his foot and hand connected in this nonsensical fashion for Wink and Silencio’s guests to try.

Accompanied by Francesco Russo, Gordon will engage de facto in a performance and fitting, as collectors wishing to acquire the piece will be immediately photographed with the artist whilst the shoemaker takes the purchaser’s exact measurements to create a tailor-made boot and glove.
The Three Steps to Heaven cocktail designed by the artist will be offered during the performance.
