Polish artist Nespoon has revived a cottage industry of appreciation for the historical art of lace design, steeping her practice in a sincere study to preserve the work of generations, towns, and regions. For her first mural of the year she borrows a 19th Century French needle lace from the Musée des Beaux-arts et de la Dentelle in Alençon.
Deftly interpreted here, Nespoon’s new work frames a corner building in the city of Callac in French Brittany. Exquisite, not only in the rendering and design of the lace patterning itself, but in the project’s ability to bring the past forward in a newly relevant and even contemporary manner.
The project is part of the Festival écologique d’Arts Urbains.
