These are not your older sister’s hand-me-downs, but they aren’t new. This ongoing series, titled “Second Hand”, is the work of Ukrainian artist Zhanna Kadyrova. Here is the description from her site:
“… the concept of ‘second hand’, we are talking about buildings that have passed from one owner to another. Objects that formally resemble clothing are lined with original tiles from the walls of a building or enterprise. Tiled ornaments transferred identical to their placement on the walls.”
Beautiful! psst… the top most image (taken by Paolo Ferrarini for Cool Hunting), made with repurposed tiles from a Venetian hotel, is currently showing at the Venice Biennale in the Central Pavilion until November 2019.
