Things to do with pricey trainers

What do you do with a knackered pair of trainers? Throw them away? Use them as slippers or ‘house shoes’? Put them in one of those charity collection thingies? Or make them into works of art?

Brian Jungen takes trainers of a certain brand (rhymes with ‘pikey’) and makes them into all sorts of weird and wonderful forms, some of which are very reminiscent of tribal art and totems. From the sweatshops to the galleries…it’s a crazy postmodern world we live in.
