Le Locle, Switzerland | 2019

Luxor Factory artistic residency

Le Locle is a beautiful small town in Switzerland, which today is the seat of global watch brands such as Tissot, Zenith, Ulisse Nardin or Mont Blanc. However, in the nineteenth century the city was known for its beautiful lace – there were over 600 lace-makers working in the town. I met with the last of them to commemorate their heritage. Big thanks to Evelyne Progin for your beautiful work and to Janick Nardin for sharing your amazing lace collecttion!

The project was realized during my artistic residency at the Luxor Factory in Le Locle.
Thank you Sophie and Francois Balmer for the invitation, your care and wonderful time.
