‘Cape Siren’ is the fourth in a series of works by Taaffe with imaginary capes in the title. ‘Cape Siren’ features decorative motifs used by the native population of western Canada, where capes are a dominant geographical feature. Forms from this shamanic culture are alternated with Chinese heads and heads of mermaids and sirens of Greco-Roman origin. This work was donated as a heritage gift to IMMA’s collection in 2008.
