The Space Between

Frequently regarded as a female and a somewhat docile pastime, the practice of lacemaking has existed for centuries. Yet for all its frivolity it continues to influence contemporary makers today, often in a thought provoking and subversive manner.

The Space Between is an international exhibition of lace, comprising of artwork selected from 34 artists, from 11 countries across 4 different continents, all unified by one common interest - LACE.

This show provides a platform for those working with this medium to share their work with the people of Headford and further afield. Taking the form of an art trail, the windows of local businesses and buildings are transformed into a series of tiny galleries.

The title of the exhibition references the way in which lace is defined by the ‘space’ between the threads, as well as highlighting how lace exists in an ‘in-between’ space, completely open to interpretation, adaptation and innovation.

Exhibition catalogues for sale at the Anglers Rest Hotel.
