Kaarina Kaikkonen Towards Light, 2003 Men's jackets
Kaarina Kaikkonen is a Finnish artist, based in Helsinki, whose works and installations use both found and mass produced objects to explore the effect of line and repetition in the environment and how this speaks of the demarkation of her identity and that of the environment and objects with which she works. At the Road to Contemporary Art, in Florence's Poggiali e Forconi booth, I was lucky enough to view a collage of sorts, made of men's shirts which she had arranged onto a large scale canvas to replicate a sunset. Amazing.
