Jeans

Jeans, 2002

A public work for Merituuli Kindergarten, ordered by Helsinki City Art Museum. The work consists of four separate parts all made of used jeans.

We collected used jeans of five different shades of blue from flea markets. Pieces are Jeans Design, Jeans Faces, Jeans Eggs and For Sleeping.
Jeans Design is 7m long piece on the wall of kindergarten’s hall. The form of the work comes from my earlier installation “Design”. I changed it from three-dimensional to 2D. All the works were sewed by using typical seam used in jeans. Work was done by professional sewerTarja Ruippo.
