the rise and rise of Riitta Ikonen

Aug 22nd, 2008 | By | Category: Wearable art

I’ve written before about Riitta Ikonen‘s beautifully evocative wearable art, so it was a blast to find an interview with her on we make money not art.

To tempt you into following the link (which itself contains a wealth of pointers to more Ikonen goodness):

My work is concerned with the performance of images, through photography and costume design. Certain items, usually small and insignificant, excite me to the point where I have to wear them and then document that process. The super- garments I make open up new experiences. In my costumes tremendous things happen – to me and to the people I work with.
