Penelope / Tatiana Blass


Made from a combination of tangled and woven red wool, Brazilian artist Tatiana Blass‘ installation, Penelope, flows inside and out of the Chapel of Morumbi in São Paulo, Brazil.

The installation was inspired by the Greek myth of Penelope, who was Odysseus’ wife in Homer’s Odyssey. In the story, Penelope weaves and destroys a burial shroud for her husband, in a tribute to the power of love and to weaving — via ArchDaily
