Jacopo Benassi's collection of eroticized slippers (artist's edition—10 booklets in a handmade wood box set).
“When I first found out about my homosexuality, the boy by whom I was attracted was wearing slippers. The oddest thing is that I was attracted by them more than I was by the guy himself. This book collects all the slippers I have used and treasured since then. It is a work about a part of my life, formerly private and now become public. They represent a significant element of my coming out.”
Edition of 1000 copies.
