Dress for Angles
by Sonia Shiel

This edition of 24 silk scarves is produced on the occasion of  Sonia Shiel’s major solo exhibition Medusa in Pieces,  at VISUAL Carlow, Autumn/Winter 2023.

Dress for Angles was specially commissioned by Kunstverein Aughrim, and produced by artist Sonia Shiel. The four quadrants of the image represent the four seasons, and contain depictions of the four creatures of Shiel’s Medusa (spider, serpent, beetle, fly), as well as four magical properties – transposition, restoration,  disembodiment, and prediction. An assembly of  props (a sounding horn, a plucked feather, a harvest  sheaf, a crystal ball, and birdsong) are held by eight disembodied arms, while eight legs tread water in multi-dimensions. 

Details: Digital collage on 100% Silk Crepe de Chine, printed by House of U, Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
Dimensions: 90cm x 90cm
Price: €150

Proceeds from sales are split with 75% going directly to the artist and 25% to Palestine Red Crescent Society.
