Habitus




Habitus is about one hundred cast in plaster Birkenstock sandals placed in the plastic boxes, that usually used on the German factories of the brand. Is the individual and independent choice possible in the world of manufactured in large quantities identity traits? What is the aim of this subconscious signalling of social membership and belonging? The plaster shoes are represented in male, female and children sizes (41, 38, 27) with the link to the idea of how the social identity is formed by the family and social circle and form the perception and behavior of the younger generations. This is ingrained set of dispositions that shape the way we perceive and react to the world.
