  TEARS AND LACE

Tears and Lace is the translation of a microscope image of a tear into lace, by Darquer Lace of Calais, under the artistic direction of Stéphane Plassier; this lace comes out of a pairing of affinities between the intricate structures of lace and of tears, which unite in life’s intimate moments.

This tear image was originally called Last tear I ever cry for you. It was a tear provoked by exasperation, accompanied by an inner resolve to make this a turning point, like an oyster forming a 'pearl' out of that moment.   As I looked at the lacey structure of this tear viewed microscopically, it made me contemplate the many dimensions of emotion, both its challenge and its promise, revealing implicit beauty.  Many years later, through my collaboration with Darquer, under Stéphane Plassier's artistic direction, Tears and Lace was conceived as a lace with a meaningful path, embodying the complexity and poetry with which we fully embrace life and love.  I renamed my photo Tears and Lace to honor its journey. For me it is the pearl.   

Tears & Lace inaugurated Darquer's collection of Artist Lace in 2015. This tear image was exhibited that year at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, in the installation of Topography of Tears, featured in Le Bords des Mondes, curated by Rebecca Lamarche-Vadel.

Schiaparelli's design director Bertrand Guyon, chose Tears and Lace for his creation, Les vases communicants, and this dress was exhibited in Haute Dentelle, curated by Sylvie Marot, at Cite Dentelle, The Museum of Lace and Fashion in Calais, FR. The exhibition, renamed The Art of Lace, traveled to the Textiel Museum in Tilburg, NL from November 2019 to September 2020. Sylvie Marot's statement, Une Dentelle de Larme, tells this story.

Tears & Lace is included in the Cotsen Textile Traces Study Collection, at George Washington University / Textile Museum, Washington DC.
