Part fashion, part art, part voyerism, artist Sebastian Errazuriz‘s show, 12 Shoes for 12 Lovers, is the hit of this year’s annual Art Basel show in Miami. The 36-year-old has created a dozen high-heel-themed mini masterpieces, all serving as tributes to (and takedowns of) his many exes – Sophie: The Ice Queen, Laura, The Heartbreaker – and paired with personal anecdotes about what exactly defined that ex to him and ultimately inspired the designs. The stories are alternately racy, wistful, bizarre, and brutally honest (though most first names have been changed to protect privacy). “I’ve never done anything like this before,” Errazuriz tells Yahoo Shine. “It was incredibly difficult. I had to think of the 12, and then how best to capture a small part of their essence.” Click on to see all 12 sculptures and learn the good, bad, and ugly about the women who inspired them.
