Kaarina Kaikkonen Hangs Laundry to Create Art

Finnish artist Kaarina Kaikkonen gives new meaning to hanging your laundry out to dry, with her site-specific installations which use recycled secondhand clothing.

According to the Liverpool Daily Post, the artist initially worked with men’s jackets, shirts, and ties, finding inspiration from memories of her late father.

In recent years, Kaikkonen has turned her attention onto the memory of her late mother, utilizing women’s clothing and shoes.
