NeSpoon [PL]

NesPoon is a Polish street art artist based in Warsaw. Since 2009, she uses the motif of traditional lace, which she applies, in stencil, in the urban space. After intervening on the facade of Museum of Fine Arts and the Lace of Alençon in 2018, she will be this summer in Le Locle, the history of the city being intimately linked to the lace, well before the advent of the watchmaking. In the eighteenth and nineteenth century, lace was exported to the largest fairs in France and Germany, making Le Locle the most important village in the Mountains. Nespoon will work on the house of dressmaker and costume designer Janick Nardin, chemin de la Joux-Pélichet. Other street artists are expected this summer.

8th season

Since 2011, the association Luxor Factory has been graciously hosting professional artists from all over the world. In exchange, its residents offer free cultural services. population. The 8th season focuses on street art, not to mention photography, music, street theater and writing.


The Association Luxor Factory in brief

Founded in 2011 in Le Locle (in Switzerland, canton of Neuchâtel), Luxor Factory is a nonprofit organization that considers the artistic creation as an universal vector of meetings and innovations. By anchoring the project in a peripheral region of Switzerland (near the french border), Luxor Factory apprehends the world as an infinite territory of expression.
To promote the mobility of artists and cultures from diverse backgrounds and cultural synergy between the Neuchâtel Mountains and the international art scene, Luxor Factory offers free hosting to foreign creators interested by a residence and a work-room for a maximum period of six months. Preference will be given to foreign professional artists.
More than a home-workshop, the structure offers to its hosts opportunities to discover cultural and social realities of the region, to create links with local artists, cultural actors and, of course, the population. This type of interaction helps to promote the assets of the region. The term "cultural exchange" takes its full meaning.

Aims of the association:

  • Host professional artists in Le Locle, inside the building that was the Luxor watch factory (a world heritage site classified by UNESCO).
  • Develop and animate the cultural scene through multicultural events offered free to the public.
  • Create synergies between the residents and the various regional cultural actors.
  • Develop projects based on regional issues (time, geographical, political, economic and social, etc.).
  • Ensure the management, the viability and the sustainability of the project by constant searches for financial support (sponsoring and subsidies).
  • Increase the visibility of the association through appropriate communication tools (website, printed, social networks, media, swiss network "Artists in résidence.ch, etc.).
  • Highlight the Mountain Heritage.
  • Support the hosts by wishing to see them glad when they leave the place... And give them the opportunity to come back!
