Shoelaces, collage


In an attempt to walk the 11700 miles from Addis Adaba to Huntly and back, the artist brought together over 500 people in 2 successive marathon events in Huntly and Ethiopia in the Winter of 2012. The walkers were linked by swapping shoe laces across the globe, some of them bought from Cockburn’s shoe shop in Huntly. This Slow Marathon has now become an annual event held in Huntly in the Spring.

After the closing down of the Cockburn’s shoe shop, the work has been re-located to the shop owners' home, where it is currently located.
