If one were to guess why The Hip’s bitter-sweet breakup song “Boots Or Hearts” resonates with artist Sandrine Dickel, one might think the artist’s PhD in economics has something to do with it.  Her academic mind just couldn’t resist exploring the connection between practical boots and unpractical hearts, and the tendency of both to fall apart.  Using heavy, tumbling block lettering, the artist represents the spirit of failing footwear while comparing it to the fragility the of the fickle heart through her sensual female figures who, despite their nakedness or perhaps because of it, feel vulnerable and emotionally disconnected from one another.   “Ooh, fingers and toes, fingers and toes/ Forty things we share/ Forty one if you include The fact that we don't care”.
