Lace in Translation

Lace in Translation explores the intersection of luxurious hand-craftsmanship with modern mass production. Utilizing unexpected materials and technologies, designers Tord Boontje and Demakersvan and sculptor Cal Lane created site-specific installations recasting traditional notions of lace. From a hand-woven raffia curtain and laser-cut fabrics, to a welded filigree oil tank and a lace chain-link fence, Lace in Translation offers a dynamic discourse about what lace is and how it functions.
