Selvedge - Issue 97 Red

November / December 2020


Issue 97 is dedicated to the colour red. As Polly explains in the introduction, “Wherever there is power, you will find red.” From religious dress, to the battlefield, to fashion. “I recently enjoyed the film The Two Popes and was intrigued by the role red played in the depiction of the Conclave. It was everywhere; from the aerial shots of the cochineal ecclesiastical robes of the summoned cardinals, to the scrutineer who ceremonially pierced each paper with a needle - through the word ‘Eligio’ - placing all the ballots on a single red thread.” Emma Rose Barber tell us that “Colour is part of the vivid ritual and theatricality of religious life. While the plainer colours of the monastic habit seek suppress vanity and bodily desires, red is often used to draw attention, finding a place across the world as a marker of the sacred.”
