For the past few decades the French artist Sylvie Blocher developed a body of video work addressing themes such as the construction of identity, self- or collective expression and the porous boundaries between masculine and feminine. Her works often involve the participation of outsiders invited to speak or to act in front of the camera to create what she calls Living Pictures.
Filling the Grand Hall of the museum and all areas of the rez-de-jardin, this solo exhibition will revolve around an ambitious project. During the first weeks, the Grand Hall of the museum will be transformed into a film studio in which visitors who wish may leave the ground for a few minutes to “rethink the world”. Feeding a video installation, the images produced will also be the starting point for a film made in collaboration with Luxembourg film director Donato Rotunno.
The exhibition S'inventer autrement at Mudam Luxembourg is organized a collaboration between with the Centre Régional d'Art Contemporain Languedoc-Roussillon, with the support of the Institut français du Luxembourg. The project Dreams Have a Language that will be presented in the exhibition is produced in collaboration with Tarantula Luxembourg, with the participation of the Fonds national de soutien à la production audiovisuelle of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
