Purple Rain: 100 petals for Kate Siklosi is a unique, limited edition “objet littéraire” created by poet Kyle Flemmer and published by The Blasted Tree. Only 100 copies were made. Each of them contains a dark purple petal, enumerated with golden numbers. Kyle collected the petals from a Clematis plant in his garden and incorporated them into this poetic object, which according to the artist, “signifies love in the midst of tragedy, love as a kind of tragedy, love as the catalyst for tragedy, devotion concealing an inescapable conflict at heart. These petals, removed from nature, and their plastic sleeves, diverted from the landfill, are symbolic of the troubling inextricability of beauty and death amid spiraling ecological devastation.”
