Trained as an architect, Portuguese artist Cristina Rodrigues combines social concerns, ethnography and gender relations in her practice.
Using a diverse variety of media – including handmade tapestries, embroideries, drawings and installations – she assembles a hybrid of cultural identities through fragmented pieces of specific histories.
For her latest project, Rodrigues has collaborated with FLY London, designing their Interstellar boots. She has also created Urban Dwellers, a large-scale installation with hundreds of FLY London shoes decorated with colourful satin ribbons.
