The Blue Route

Visiting Brighton during the warm days of May the visitor came across The Blue Root, an exhibition by Kaarina Kaikkonen and artists in residence, Stig Evans and Scott Smith. Their work could be found in a church, on a wall and, surprisingly, on the central clock tower, located in the centre of the shopping area of Brighton.

Working primarily in public and easily accessible places, Kaarina Kaikkonen (an artist from Finland) uses simple, everyday objects such as second hand clothing, toilet paper and women’s shoes, in order to create large scale installations that articulate the architectural or open space in which her works are sited. Through ambiguous in meaning, her works evoke associations of personal loss, collective memory and local history.
