I’VE DREAMT ABOUT

COLLECTION MUDAM

23/11/2011 - 04/03/2012

Artists never stop reinventing our relationship to reality. From Tomás Saraceno’s “realist utopias” to the models of urban expansion by François Roche, artists are positioning themselves in the outposts of new researches. Thus these sweet dreamers and visionaries sketch out new ways of being in the world. As sounding boards of numerous utopias, they nontheless cast a critical gaze on our past experiments and know how to detect the conflicts that tomorrow heralds.

MONDES INVENTÉS, MONDES HABITÉS

08/10/2011 - 15/01/2012

Mondes inventés, Mondes habités unveils the singularity of universes developed by artists who are in turn thinkers, engineers and architects investigating the forces and flux that control and make up our universe, as well as the dynamics that animate it. Attentive to the mechanics of the world, sensitive to its potential energy, as well as to the streams of thought which irrigate it and define it, their work tackles questions of a scientific and metaphysical nature.

SOUNDSCAPES & VIEWS

30/07/2011 - 08/10/2011

In the summer of 2011, the Park Dräi Eechelen will be revitalised by the project RECOVERING - Soundscapes & Views: four sound installations created specifically for this venue by the Luxembourg composer and artist Steve Kaspar and live interventions with music, dance and performances every second Saturday will encourage visitors to take walks, go on day trips, have picnics and make exciting discoveries.

HORTUS PRAXIS

15/07/2011 - 07/08/2011

Mudam invites designer Thomas Pausz (*1978) for a series of open air activities throughout the summer. Pausz treats his design practice like a garden from which participants are invited to collect what has been sown during shared experiences. He acts softly, his means are economic an ecological. A slow pace and a sense of community are at the center of his activity program spread across several intra and extra-muros sites.

REPLAY

18/06/2011 - 18/09/2011

The cinematic staging and the editing of shots and sequences are borrowed from the cinematic arts by contemporary artists whose work questions the notions of temporality, reconstruction, the realistic character of documentary and the tyranny of credulity of the filmed image. The exhibition is highlighting the gap always existing between reality and fiction in an era dominated by the media and all sorts of images.

THE INNER SELF IN OUTER SPACE

18/06/2011 - 18/09/2011

Like a detective using scientific methods, Melvin Moti patiently constructs visual plots by taking anecdotes as a starting point. Somewhere between real events, imagination and fiction, Moti’s reconstructions call on our memory, precisely to make up for the “black holes” which deliberately remain. The slowness, the denuded and indexical nature of images at the limits abstraction confers a snatched and hypnotic beauty on Moti’s films.

18/06/2011 - 11/09/2011

“How to write a story starting with two or three images, or a situation based on a minimal number of objects?” Mac Adams’ photographs and installations are marked by a carefully composed dramatic tension and are characterized by the economy of narrative means employed. The disturbing impression of only having access to snippets of stories is reinforced by the subjects depicted: news items, crime scenes, detective mysteries...

JOHN STEZAKER

18/06/2011 - 11/09/2011

The works that the British artist John Stezaker has been creating since the mid-1970s make use of film stills and portraits of actors found in secondhand bookshops, pictures taken from vintage books, and old postcards. At their root lies the fascination that the found image can wield, thus reversing the usual hierarchy between artist and artwork. “Images find me rather than the other way round.” His collages and image fragments are hallmarked by minimal modes of intervention.

BLACK FOREST

18/06/2011 - 11/09/2011

The works by artist Pascale Marthine Tayou place dominators and dominated, North and South, creator and viewer back to back. Tayou nonchalantly presents pieces that brutality translate the evils of the world. The artwork of this self-taught artist is an experience which needs to be lived rather than described. He is known for his assemblages, drawings, installations and texts, the raw material of which is provided by the detritus of society.

MUDAM COLLECTION

27/04/2011 - 06/11/2011

The exhibition is an invitation to travel through the landscapes in Mudam Collection. It may be oversized, pixelated then deployed like a panorama as in the works of Xavier Veilhan, it may be more intimate, like outlined in the graphic variations of Cy Twombly, it may also be fantasised as in the luminous paintings by Christian Hidaka: in all the cases, the landscape seems to be a territory of research with fluctuating horizons.

THE PARADOXES OF TIME

17/02/2011 - 22/05/2011

The exhibition focuses on works in which different temporalities are combined, developing a paradoxical relation of time. One of the purposes is to simultaneously consider the key role that this notion has played in the work of a number of artists who started their career in the 60s, including Bruce Nauman, Dan Graham and Valie Export, and its presence in the practice of the younger generation, such as Manon de Boer, Laurent Montaron and Anri Sala.

STICK EMPATHY

17/02/2011 - 22/05/2011

Suchan Kinoshita first worked for the theatre, as an actress, director and as a decorator. She uses this experience, as well as her musical background, to produce installations which invite the public to an interactive experience. These installations, apart from their distinctive poetry, always take in account the surroundings they are put in, while mixing sound, screening and construction.

SITUATION COMEDY

17/02/2011 - 22/05/2011

Suzanne Lafont presents her "Comedy Situation" project. The starting point of this project is a work of art by General Idea "Manipulating the Self Pamphlet" (1971), for which the Canadian artists' collective had passed an advertisement instructing people to carry out a distorsion - to seize your cheek, your neck or your chin with the hand, while passing your arm behind your neck - and the request for a photographic documentation in return.
