    Suspended Shirt Installations by Kaarina Kaiakkonen textiles multiples installation clothing

    Using hundreds of second-hand shirts, Finnish environmental artist Kaarina Kaiakkonen creates site-specific installations suspended above roadways or inside large warehouse spaces. Her most recent work, Are We Still Going On?, was conceived at Collezione Maramotti, a private collection of contemporary art in Reggio Emilia, Italy, and involves hundreds of children’s shirts hung in rows to resemble the interior hull of a giant ship. The shirts are organized by color on each side of the skeletal boat to represent a sort of symbolic dialogue about gender. You can learn more over on Art Texts Pics and see a brief video of the piece. [Via Colossal]
