The Lace-installation in the Garden of Nations, Ramallah, Palestinian Autonomy

project description

Garden of Nations, one of the rare public spaces is the booming Palestinian capital was ment to become a representation space, where art pieces donated by different countries would coexist. Relatively small scale of the park leads to inevitable effect of visual overcrawding and competition of free-standing sculptures. To minimise the danger of entering into the same logic The Lace is a shadow-maker "glued" to the wall encompassing the park. It allows people to hide from the sun being a sort of tridimensional pocket. The Lace is a steel structure made out of 220 circular modules referring to a decorative Polish folk art motive used for Christmas tree decorations made out straw. The opening is planned for spring 2010.
