NeSPoon and Regue Fernández Bring Bowling Women to the Square in Belorado

StARTer Proyectos Culturales, an independent cultural organization just finished a collaboration of two artists in the plaza, and you can almost here the voices of the women whose memories they evoked.

A unique project that brought the images of women playing a local game similar to bowling to the frontages of Plaza San Nicolas, the combined talents of Street Artists Nespoon and Regue Fernández brings back images of people who lived here in this northern Spanish town of Belorado, population 2,100.

“This square was a place where local women played bowling,” says the Polish Nespoon. “I found and painted local lace motifs and Regue created the figures of the local women based on old photos he found from the city’s newspaper.”

Conceived and led by curator Estela Rojo and Fernández, the project is meant to address the presence of women in public space; and the heavy attendance at the opening here, it looks like it was a success.

“Many people came to the opening of the square to see the new décor,” Nespoon says, describing the large crowd gathered to watch women playing the game and to see the new artworks. “There was a lot of joy, laughter and fun.”
