Exposition: Close to the heart - My Shirt Becomes Art

Discover a gigantic installation with more than 1,000 shirts in the modern Sint-Anna-ten-Drieën church on the Antwerp Left Bank by Finnish artist Kaarina Kaikkonen from 23 June. As one of the founders of the Environmental Art, Kaarina is mainly interested in old, worn out and discarded clothing and gives it a second life. For the installation, the artist worked with a dozen of volunteers who collected the shirts and some of the shirts even has a special backstory.

The exhibition also features documentaries: an interview with Kaarina, images of earlier work, the stories of the shirt and a stop motion film of the installation.
