Ghostly Remnants

Oak Beach, Baltic Sea

While we’re at it, why don’t we round out this discussion about graffiti and talk about Polish artist NeSpoon? She’s been installing her lace doilies in seemingly bewildering spaces such as beaches, parks and abandoned buildings. There’s something spooky about her worky. Her white doilies have a sense of phantasm about them; they’re reminiscent of spider webs, dream catchers and snowflakes, all of which in my opinion have a quiet darkness about them. (Have you ever stood in snowfall at night? It’s ghostly.)

“Forty Forty Project it’s a street art gallery in Warsaw / Poland, located in the 150 years old, forgotten military fort,” says NeSpoon’s website.

“My works for Art Kitchen Foundation in Franciacorta / Italy,” writes NeSpoon.

Looking at all the different spaces where NeSpoon has spun her magic, from driftwood to parks to rundown buildings what would you deem the most appropriate place for doilies? What’s your favorite? I believe the doilies contribute one particular shared message, just as NeSpoon says on her old Blogger account:

“My friend Ania named it, the jewellery of the public space. I must say, I like that name. Jewellery makes people look pretty, my public jewellery has the same goal, make public places look better. I would like people who discover here and there my small applications, to smile and just simply feel better.”
