Casino Luxembourg - Forum d'art contemporain
The Casino Luxembourg - Forum d’art contemporain will receive the first Arty Hours reserved to the Young Friends of Museums (18-35 years old)
The visit will be guided by Kevin Muhlen, commissioner of the exposition and will be followed by a drink.
Celebration Factory by Filip Markiewicz is the product of a Europe in transformation and marked by deep crises, but also an artistic response to this new socio-political paradigm. Party and celebration become the vehicles of awareness, a questioning of the system that surrounds us or a resistance to the reign of fear.
Filip Markiewicz' artistic project does not intend to denounce the system or develop a form of political activism, but rather proposes an almost surrealist language that brings together various modes of expression: visual arts, performance, music, debate, celebration. Celebration Factoryaims to find a fluid and artistic language in accordance with our society in perpetual motion.
Luxemburger of Polish origin, Filip Markiewicz (b. 1980) is a multidisciplinary artist expressing himself through, a.o., drawing, video and installations thereby creating a coherent visual body of work using diversified media.
