Les Niches Parties consists of a series of shiny masks, adorned with coloured ribbons. The installation reflects the festive atmosphere Nadia Naveau experienced during her trip to Mexico, where coloured flags liven up the streets. It also refers to the communicative function of flags: as disseminators of a warning, message or ideology. In Bruges, she temporarily filled the niches by the water in a playful way with a masquerade that appeals to the imagination, a warm welcome for every passer-by.
Sculptor Nadia Naveau (b. 1975, Brugge, BE) is known for her diverse experiments with form, colour and various materials, including ceramics, bronze and polyester. Resembling three-dimensional collages, her sculptures display an eclectic nature that evoke various associations.
