Riiko Sakkinen (FI): Riiko Sakkinen’s Department Store

The department store and the museum have often been compared to one another. In Riiko Sakkinen’s department store everything imaginable is for sale but there is nothing to see. It is useless but it works and the prices are equal to those of all other department stores in Kuopio.

Riiko Sakkinen graduated this year as Master of Art from the Helsinki Academy of Arts. In his installations, interventions and actions he uses ice cream, ham, dogs, mouse traps, buying and selling.
