Suspended Shirt Installations by Kaarina Kaikkonen

  • Posted by Neil Simonton on April 8, 2013 in Art
  • Kaarina Kaikkonen, a leading environmental artist from Finland, uses second-hand clothing to create hanging installations in open spaces. Suspending the clothing above roadways, in parks, or in large warehouses, the works are often made to resemble certain shapes.

    For her most recent exhibition, called "Are We Still Going On?," Kaikkonen used hundreds of dress shirts donated by people from the Washington, DC area to construct a large-scale, site-specific hanging installation that took the shape of a boat. With the shirts arranged by color, the installation takes on a symbolic dialogue on gender. Learn more over on Art Texts Pics and watch a short video of the piece here.
