Plastic Mama

Plastic mama took place in Kansalaistori Square, Helsinki. A participatory performative artwork. Made of recycled plastic by a thousand schoolchildren, Plastic Mama is a baroque dress that will rise up to ten meters during the Kansalaistori Square summer party. Standing at the top of her plastic creation, artist Kaisa Salmi will be sermonizing on environmental issues for a total of ten hours.

Young football players arriving from all over the world and joining Helsinki cup are invited to bring recycled plastic objects to present to Plastic Mama.

The texts to be read out are authored by the Finnish writer Juha Hurme and artist Kaisa Salmi herself. The artistic working group for Plastic Mama also includes dress designer Marjatta Nissinen and set designer Markku Pätilä.
