2022-05-13 10:30:00 2022-05-13 10:30:00 Midi de l'Art : Monique Becker & Sali Muller Where the sky is pink and the grass is green Valerius Art Gallery 1, place du Théâtre Luxembourg Exposition du 22.04.2022 au 21.05.2022 Visite guidée en français par Gérard Valerius et Lou Phillips, en présence de l'artiste Monique Becker Abstract artist Monique Becker (*1958) lays off her usual black and white palette to introduce a new series of works. Inspired by nature, the artist creates poetic large formats in which utter physical commitment and a close engagement with the canvas are required. The artist brings forth a vibrant festival of colors and inflamed movements and is expressing a joie de vivre by superimposing and the coexistence of paint layers. Monique Becker has studied Fine Art at the Academy of Fine Art Kolbermoor, Germany, under Hermann Nitsch, Markus Lüpertz and Siegfried Anzinger. Recently, two large scale works by the artist have entered the Collection of MUDAM, Museum of Contemporary Art Luxembourg. Upcoming Projects in 2022 and 2023 include a museum show and residency at Konschthaal Esch, Luxembourg and solo shows at Museo Emilio Caraffa, in Cordoba, Argentina and Museo Marco, La Boca, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Visual (right) : Painting © Monique Becker, Das Leben ist ein Fest III, 2022, 250 x 170 cm Conceptual artist Sali Muller (*1981) uses artistic means to explore currently relevant issues, in particular those of identity and (self-) representation in the context of social change and in times of self-optimisation. Sali Muller marks exhibition spaces with light-reflecting installations and dazzling objects, often mirrors. Her visual comments become a reflection of a time where delusions increasingly play a significant role. Sali Muller has studied Visual Art at the University Marc Bloch in Strasbourg, France. Sali’s work has been shown internationally at the IKOB Museum of Contemporary Art in Belgium, the Kallmann-Museum in Munich, Germany, the MAC Museo d‘Arte Contemporanea di Lissone in Italy, the Kunstmuseum Gelsenkirchen in Germany and the Times Art Museum in Beijing, Chengdu and Chongqing, China, amongst others. Between 2022 and 2023 Sali will have exhibitions at Kunstmuseum Heidenheim, Germany and MAMA Modern Art Museum of Algiers, North Africa, as well as gallery shows in Los Angeles, Berlin, Milan and Budapest.  Visual (left) : Painting © Sali Muller, Ultra Contemporary Landscape, 2022, 180 x 121 cm Bärbel Aubert accueillera les Amis des Musées pour ce Midi de l'Art.
