Berlin-based artist Ida-Marie Corell has taken 555 IKEA blue bags and turned them into a giant dress for an installation in the exhibit, ‘Oh, Plastiksack!‘, which explores creative and artistic uses of plastic bags.

The ‘ID(E)A dress’ Corell wears is a unique way of reusing plastic, and the huge blue gown made out of shopping bags from the Swedish retailer fills an entire room in the Gewerbemuseum in Switzerland. The installation is open to the public until October 7th.
