The Blue Route + Time Passing By

15 Feb 2013

Two newly commissioned sculptures by one of Finland’s leading artists Kaarina Kaikkonen: The Blue Route at Fabrica and Time Passing By at the Clocktower in the city centre.

Working primarily in public and easily accessible places, Kaarina Kaikkonen uses simple, everyday objects such as second-hand clothing, toilet paper and women’s shoes, to create large-scale installations that articulate the architectural or open space in which her works are sited. She is best known for several major works using hundreds of discarded men’s jackets, which have a highly charged and personal significance for her. Though ambiguous in meaning, her works evoke associations of personal loss, collective memory, and local history.

Painter Stig Evans and musician Scott Smith are artists-in-residence during the exhibition at Fabrica.
