Oak Beach

In the contemporary scene of installation and urban art, the polish artist NeSpoon creates with her work a winner mix of street art and traditional pottery and embroidery techniques. The project Oak Beach, an original intervention on natural environment takes its name, she said, from her favorite place on the Baltic sea, were she used to go every summer.

What she does in this context is trying to introduce her art in a particular place crowded with memories, using laces not as a stencil – as she usually does – but creating installations on raw objects found on the beach: carefully constructed compositions are tied between the branches of pieces of tree trunks. By doing this, she’s moving installations outside the usual art theatre, looking for interaction with bathers on the beach. She explains that “Many people took pictures of the installations, they moved them around from place to place, they were even used for the construction of beach camps. Kids played around them and with them.”

We believe that, once this level of interaction is achieved, it can show which is the living nature and the real aim of a motionless installation.
