The Blue Route
Exhibition Dates: 6 April – 27 May, 2013
Preview 5 April, 6 – 9 pm
Fabrica is delighted to be partnering with Brighton Festival to commission two major new works by Finnish artist Kaarina Kaikkonen for our spring exhibition as part of the Out of the Blue - Woad project. One piece will be shown in the gallery and one at an outdoor location in the city (during the Festival only).
Kaarina Kaikkonen is one of Finland’s leading artists. She works primarily in public and easily accessible places using simple, everyday objects such as second-hand clothing, toilet paper and women’s shoes, to create large-scale installations. 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.
Brighton Festival is England’s largest arts festival and takes place for three weeks during May.
