Lost in Lace

Leave a comment

This weekend me and Phil went to see the Lost in Lace exhibition currently on at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery (BMAG). It included a really diverse collection of works inspired by lace, by both UK and international artists.

Enclosed below are images of three of my favourite pieces from the exhibition. These give a good idea of the variety with which the artists featured interpreted the ‘lace’ theme.

The exhibited pieces are almost entirely large-scale, with quite a bit of interaction (lace doorways, and samples of lots of the pieces to touch) which makes for an involving show. More information on the exhibition and featured artists is currently available from the gallery site.

After the Dream, Chiharu Shiota. A video of the installation process is available online from the Crafts Council.

Lace the Final Frontier, Michael Brennand-Wood. This had a military theme, with lots of soldiers, skulls and planes.
