Kaarina Kaikkonen

Kaarina Kaikkonen - seen here

Still musing about things Finnish, I have found this beautiful image of an installation by Kaarina Kaikkonen. Using everyday worn clothes she makes large scale works that take on monumental proportions. There's something about the ghosts and resonances of the individuals who wore the garments alongside ideas about the power of people as collective beings - community. There's also just a exceptional beauty in the work, I was unsurprised to read that she began life as a painter.
