Tears and Lace
In a perfect synthesis of historic savoir-faire: lace, and contemporary technology: microphotography, under the artistic direction of Stéphane Plassier, Darquer has inaugurated a new collection of artist lace created in collaboration with Rose-Lynn Fisher. Tears and Lace was inspired by the Topography of Tears series recently exhibited at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, in Le Bord des Mondes, curated by Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel, who described the tears as work that reveals the existence of a multitude of territories inside of us… attempting to make visible through images, the physical manifestations of the intangible and undecipherable.
Tears and Lace was conceived as a lace whose complexity and poetry unite the experience and the garments of intimacy.
As Stéphane Plassier noted, Tears and lace are together at the most intimate moments of life: birth, marriage, romance.
A photograph immortalizes these moments; a photograph of tears links the intimate to the universal. And lace from these tears completes the circle.
