Kaarina Kaikkonen is one of Finland's leading artists and is known internationally for her large scale, site-specific environmental installations made from simple recycled materials and domestic items such as clothing and paper. A thousand shirts belonging to people from the Washington, D.C. area will be turned into a hanging sculpture for Nordic Cool 2013. The installation will be suspended in the Hall of States, taking the shape of a boat broken in two pieces, part of it being lost somewhere, according to the artist. This installation is created specifically for Nordic Cool 2013.
