A Polish woman has decorated a Swedish city. Huge mural in the centre of

The author of the mural is NeSpoon. The lace pattern tightly covered the walls of a residential building in the city centre. The artwork was created as part of BAB 2024 – Borås Art Biennial.

Borås is a city of 70,000 inhabitants in southern Sweden. It is an industrial city, where most of the inhabitants worked in textile production. There is a post-industrial building in the centre, which houses the Textile and Fashion Museum and the Department of Materials Technology Studies. The Polish artist was asked to make an installation inside. Her second activity related to the biennale was a mural that covered the walls of a residential building also in the centre of Borås.

NeSpoon is famous for creating installations in public places based on the theme of lace. The huge lace that decorated the building is a pattern taken from the Department’s collection, and therefore reflects the character of the city and Swedish culture. It took the artist six days to cover the walls. The work had to be interrupted frequently due to rain. However, it was worth the wait, the effect is impressive.

Borås Art Biennial is organised by the Borås Art Museum. The theme of this year’s festival is ‘Layers, Loops, Lines’. The biennial runs from 15 June to 15 September. For several months, the city is filled with art and artistic events are organised in the public space.

This year’s biennale looks at the relationship between time, space and place and how these are linked to society and the environment. To this end, the organisers have invited 15 artists from all corners of the world to show cultural differences in their own distinctive ways.
