The artist reveals...

...how lace is significant to their work

“Like lace making I am in fact repeating the same action over and over. And, as with lace making I am creating a work from a single thread, the pattern defined by the space in between the threads: by the emptiness”.

...the ideas behind the work

“The idea to use a pattern based on curves came to me when I observed the industrial gallery during my visit to the museum. The space is impressive with its open-work ornamental iron arches”.
 

Tamar Frank specialises in site-sensitive installations which use light. Past projects include the façade of the Funen Museum Odense, Denmark (2010), and the façades of two skyscrapers in Vancouver (2011).
