Noticed the shoes hanging off of these lampposts in Shoreditch recently?

Footwear dangling from the street furniture in Shoreditch is no new phenomenom — heck, even the trees are getting in on the action. But the difference with this latest lot is that it appears to defy gravity — 'hanging' upwards from the lampposts.

It's the work of artist Pejac, ahead of his solo show at London Newcastle Project Space. Little is known about the exhibition yet, but the shoe installations — on lampposts in Shacklewell Street and Granby Street — maybe hint at what to expect.
