Passion Over Reason Quilt
Made To Order 22–30 Weeks
Designer Mark Clintberg for Fogo Island Arts
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.
