Tony Cragg’s work, which has been charting new ground since the 1970s, is part of a busy dialogue with matter. Whether made of wood, glass, plastic or bronze, his sculptures associate the particular qualities of a material with the vitality of a form. This major exhibition offers the public of the Greater Region of Luxembourg a chance to discover the oeuvre of one of the most important contemporary sculptors.
With surprising formal diversity and great conceptual coherence, the work of Darren Almond is informed by concerns such as time, space, history and landscape. Exploring how these different dimensions intersect and how we “inhabit” them, many of his artworks testify to his interest in subjective, liminal experiences, playing on the foundations of our perception and knowledge. Devised as a “temporal landscape” deploying all facets of his practice his exhibition at Mudam Luxembourg highlights how, in his work, different time scales resonate.
Cristina Lucas, a Spanish artist born in 1973 in Jaén, is fascinated by the mechanisms of power. Her works start with an analysis of the principal political and economic structures, which she dissects in order to reveal the contradictions between official history, the real story, and the collective memory. Taking up the entire lower level of the museum, her exhibition Trading Transcendence will be organised around the ideas of capitalism and globalisation at the beginning of the 21st century.
As a photographer whose work lies both in the field of visual arts and the media, Samuel Gratacap is interested in phenomena of migration and transit zones generated by contemporary conflicts. His projects are the result of long periods of immersion, time to understand the complexity of situations and restore what, beyond the numbers, maps and geopolitics, is its heart: trajectories and personal experiences.
