Don’t Tread on Me:
Fetish Boots, 2011, in Yinka Shonibare’s new show at James Cohan. The boots—in the artist’s signature fabric, the “African” textile whose true roots are in Holland and Indonesia—are among works in various media exploring themes of desire, yearning, love, power and sexual repression. Also, they give new meaning to the term “finish fetish.”
