Steps (2016)

For ages, the patterns in shape of feet were hidden inside the book Farmer can learn well and use philosophy - words of Chairman Mao. 

Cong Yan’s grandmother knew how to make shoes, wherefore was producing them for all the family. For many years she was cutting the shapes from the paper she had at hand, frequently from outdated newspapers, to prepare the patterns for new pair of shoes.

These shapes incidentally cutted tell a fragmented history of China from 50’s to 90’s.
