The centre of the city almost came to a standstill today as a new piece called Time Passing By, produced by leading Finnish artist Kaarina Kaikkonen for the Brighton Festival was installed. But rather than being displayed in a gallery, this installation is on the famous Clock Tower.
The installation is made entirely from old clothes donated by people in the city. Though ambiguous in meaning, apparently the artist’s works evoke associations of personal loss, collective memory, and local history. It will certainly be interesting to see what Brighton and Hove visitors and residents make of the work.
