LoveLace presents a multidisciplinary collection of work by 134 finalists in the Powerhouse Museum International Lace Award. Playful and inventive, these works represent a provocative challenge to traditional concepts of lace.
Artists from 20 different countries push lace techniques in surprising new directions – knitting human hair into sculptures of human organs, crocheting steel wire into a ghostly motor engine, carving lace patterns from the body of a rusty old truck. Lindie Ward curated the exhibition.
