Passion Over Reason Quilt

Designer Mark Clintberg for Fogo Island Arts

Makers Fogo Island Workshops x Textile

Dimensions 2667 × 2667 mm


Engaging with the vibrant legacy of quilting on Fogo Island while on a 5-month residency with Fogo Island Arts, Mark Clintberg’s quilt project is a reply to the pivotal Joyce Weildand works “Reason Over Passion” and “La Raison Avant La Passion”.

The limited-edition quilts are produced in both French and English versions. Continuing this reversal of the phrase used in Wieland's piece, which in turn quotes former-Prime Minister Pierre Elliott Trudeau, every piece of fabric in the quilts has been stitched "wrong" side up, revealing the lighter-coloured reverse side of the material.

A portion of proceeds from the sale of Mark Clintberg’s quilts will be donated back to Fogo Island Arts and the community of Fogo Island via Shorefast Foundation.
