The Triumphs Blanket
Original collection of blankets for the exhibition BOLTS at Special Special, February–April, 2018. The personified ostrich feathers in the Triumphs Blanket by Oona Brangam-Snell are pulled from a 16th century Netherlandish tapestry “The Triumph of Fame over Death”. In the original image, the feathers - sewn into an angel’s skirt - mock three female figures being trampled to death by a chariot. The artwork is no longer ecclesiastically enshrined, and presents itself as intimate companions in the guise of a blanket.
70% cotton 30% rayon, 72 x 46.5 in.
