"SOILED"

Mixed Media Installation

A 1920 (95 year old) blood stained Klan robe installation. I acquired this piece from an antique dealer who had a family bring it in after another family member died. I had no idea it was stained with blood before the acquisition. I believe, after historical research, that this was used in the Summer of 1919 ("Red Summer") somewhere in the south. The blood stains and the time period is almost identical. I kept the robe intact, created the hood to complete it, and purchased the vintage metal signage to show the true level of hatred this robe and installation represents. The rope is an old bell tower church rope.

SOILED is comprised of circa 1919 authentic Klan robe, natural fiber rope, metal and wood.
