The ponchos are meant to be worn as a singular piece, but also function as part of the installation Red, Black, Silver, and White. The fabric of the ponchos is unique and specially designed and woven for each piece. The ponchos are made of so-called double face fabric, which means that the fabric is in fact two fabrics (with different material and different designs) woven together into one. As a result, both sides of the ponchos can be worn on the outside. Each poncho is finished by hand work.
The signs from the outside of the poncho’s refer to “the language of the Goddess”, about which the artist has made previous works (Experimental Archeology, 2007-2008).
