riitta päiväläinen

vestiges of human beings, retaining traces of the history of the person who wore them, long after having been discarded...representing both, the presence and the absence of their former owner...landscape as a stage for displaying the clothes, landscape as a representative of the cycle of life...soaked in water and placed outside in the cold, the garments freeze them a sculptural quality and opens up manifold metaphorical and narrative possibilities.
