Liverpool Biennial – Hanging on to each other

This piece of artwork – part of the Liverpool Biennial, an International Festival of Contemporary Art – was designed by Finnish artist Kaarina Kaikkonen.

In this project she has collected old clothing from around Liverpool and has installed them in the atrium of the FACT building.

The maternal act of doing laundry can be understood as a basic symbol of healing, care and unconditional love.


  1. Art? Again, if you say so. Doesn't do it for me.

  2. Interesting. We had a similar kind of artwork outdoors but a storm a few weeks ago took it... It's not going up again, according to the local newspaper. - Checking my facts now I find that that was by Kaarina Kaikkonen too! Here's a link to photos I've shown earlier in my Picture Book blog.
