The Brooklyn Museum invited Nick Knight to create a film for their 'Killer Heels' exhibition. 'La Douleur Exquise' features a one-of-a-kind, specially-made pair of glass slippers by Georgina Goodman and draws on the object's association in fairytales with the painful pursuit of love. Passion, tension, hardship and discomfort are all themes that underly this visual exploration of shoes.
