Sequins and beads on fabric
(43 1/2" x 45 1/2"), c.2010

This flag is Mireille's response to the ctastrophe of the Jan 12th, 2010 earthquake, in which she lost several family members and her home. It depicts representatives of Haiti's three primary religions - Catholicism, Vodou and Protestant Christianity - praying among the rubble and the dead. Another 'earthquake flag" by Mireille Delice was featured in the profile of her in the Fall/Winter, 2011 issue of Hand/Eye Magazine This flag is extremely densely beaded and sequinned (and thus extremely heavy), in the manner of the artists Constant and Simeon.

Port-au-Prince, Haiti (1965 - )
