Tatiana Blass is a Brazilian artist who pierced the walls of a Sao Paulo chapel with huge masses of red yarn, letting the bright material trail into the surrounding grasses, landscape, and trees. She names the installation as Penelope.
Tatiana states: “The work consists of a 14-meter long red carpet extending from the chapel entrance to the main altar, where its end is attached to a hand loom equipped with foot pedal, thus giving the impression that the carpet weaving is under way. On the other side of the loom, tangled yarns are stretched out to pass through holes in the wattle-and-daub wall and reach the outside area. The red yarn takes over the greenery of the museum garden, covering the lawn and climbing shrubs and trees. In this process, it creates an ambiguous movement of construction and de-construction, in a reference to the Greek myth of Penelope.” Source [Artist’s Official Website]
