Luxembourg Art Week 2022 brings together 80 galleries, artist collectives and institutions in three sections. In addition to the Main Section with established galleries from home and abroad (49), the prospective Take Off Section will once again take place (25). In addition, the fair has a Solo Section dedicated to individual artists whose work can be discovered through specially conceived projects (6). 30 new exhibitors are taking part in the fair this year, including backs\ash (Paris), Galerie Bernard Bouche (Paris), Galerie EAST (Strasbourg), Galerie Louis Gendre (Chamalières), Galerie Martina Kaiser (Cologne), Bernhard Knaus Fine Art (Frankfurt), Galerie Nathalie Obadia (Paris, Brussels), La peau de l’ours (Brussels), Galerie Heike Strelow (Frankfurt), Galerie Sturm & Schober (Vienna) in the Main Section, as well as Clages (Cologne), Galerie Valérie Delaunay (Paris), Galerie Ilian Rebei (Paris), LAGE EGAL Curatorial Projects (Berlin), Montoro12 (Brussels, Rome) and Romero Paproki (Paris) in the Take Off Section. Thanks to the presence of new galleries such as Gandy gallery (Bratislava) and Victor Lope Arte Contemporaneo (Barcelona), two new countries, Slovakia and Spain, are represented at the fair for the first time. All sections taken together, Luxembourg Art Week thus covers no less than 14 countries and 5 continents (85% foreign exhibitors).

HIGHLIGHTS

Individual stands, such as those of the DavisKlemmGallery (Wiesbaden, Hochheim am Main), focus on thematic complexes such as architecture with works by Hein Spellmann, Julian Opie and Konrad Winter. The programme of the Martina Kaiser Gallery focuses on selected artists and their exploration of organic phenomena and interpretations of natural themes; works by Aljoscha, Umberto Ciceri, Zhuang Hong Yi, Alexander Höller and Bongchull Shin are shown. Galerie Gebr. Lehmann will show current approaches to photography, drawing and painting with a focus on Beate Hornig, a 64-year-old artist who works with the traditional technique of reverse glass painting. Works by Slawomir Elsners, Frank Nitsche and Manfred Luther will be on display at the stand. Leipzig’s Kleindienst Gallery will show works by Rosa Loy, Sebastian Nebe, Simon Adam Peter, Benjamin Dittrich and Max Hechinger on the stand. The selection of artists by Bernhard Knaus Fine Art provides a broad insight into the work of the positions represented by the gallery: Giacomo Santiago Rogado, Ralf Peters, Mark Francis, Cigdem Any, Robert Zandvliet, Bernard Prinz. The Obadia Gallery presents a selection of paintings by Joris Van de Moortel, Hoda Kashiha and Sophie Kuijken.

It enables visitors to gain a more detailed insight into the respective artistic creations. Galerie Michael Janssen presents works by Berlin-based artist Yafeng Duan (1973, Hebei Province). In her meditative poetic works, Duan plays with colour overlays and transparency effects to express her feelings about natural phenomena. The Macadam Gallery from Brussels is showing photographs by Thomas Devaux (1980, Marcq-en-Barœul, France), whose almost abstract compositions take up the visual codes of the consumer world to address the seductive power of the object as a fetish. Located in the heart of Luxembourg City, the Fellner Contemporary gallery presents a selection of paintings and sculptures by Moritz Ney (1974, Petingen, Luxembourg), one of Luxembourg’s most important contemporary artists. His paintings and sculptures, which are characterised by joie de vivre and conviviality, are characterised by intense colours and spontaneity. The Flemish gallery Zwart Huis, based in Knokke, is showing works by Jan De Vliegher (1964, Bruges), whose work is firmly anchored in figuration. His compositions, made in vivo or from photographs, are characterised by a dynamism and liveliness that sometimes bring to mind lyrical abstraction. Maruani Mercier brings works by Arne Quinze, Ross Belckner, Peter Halley, Dankyi Mensah, Cornelius Angor and sculptural works by Ron Gorchov, Francesco Clemente and Tony Matelli to the stand. Another highlight at the fair is the Cameroonian artist Barthelemy Toguo – represented by the two participating galleries Nosbaum Reding (Luxembourg) and Galerie Lelong & Co (Paris, New York) – who had his first monographic exhibition at Villa Merkel this year entitled “Faith Can Move Mountains”. Works by Pierre Soulages are also exhibited by the secondary market gallery Galerie F. Hessler (Luxembourg).

At Nosbaum Reding Projects from Luxembourg, a selection of charcoal drawings by Nuno Lorena (1966, Lisbon) can be discovered. The Portuguese artist’s works, made from photographic models, transcend the realism of the motifs (birds, landscapes, portraits) to achieve an identity of their own.

To highlight the role of artist-run spaces in the art world, Luxembourg Art Week, with the support of the Institut Français du Luxembourg, has invited the temporary and mobile exhibition space Balak – Espace temporaire d’art contemporain to conceive a specific project for the fair. Founded by Mehryl Levisse, the collective from Champagne has made mobility its operating principle. Its projects each adapt to the particularities of the place – a gym, a flat, an abandoned factory, public toilets… – and use spatial constraints as a creative stimulus. During Luxembourg Art Week, Merhyl Levisse curates the 13th project of the collective, which is actively engaged with the LGBTQIA+ community. The stand in the Take Off area will feature works by artists from this community: Ron Athey, John Hanning, Sylvie Lehmers, Mehryl Levisse, Linda Montano and Annie Sprinkle. Filip Markiewicz Lust for Life, 2022 Oil on canvas, 120 × 140 cm Courtesy ZIDOUN-BOSSUYT GALLERY and Filip Markiewicz In the Take Off area, visitors can expect the Parallel NFT Front Office, a hybrid environment inspired by the world of traders and gamers, two characteristic figures of Web3. Curated in partnership with the US platform Feral File, the booth functions simultaneously as an exchange for NFT | IRL transactions and an exhibition space. The aim is to further inform future collectors of NFTs (non-fungible tokens) and visitors interested in artistic practices based on blockchain processes. In collaboration with Parallel and Feral File, a blockchain-mined generative artwork by artist Aleksandra Jovanić will also be offered. Visitors can also purchase works via the Feral File platform and access support and advice. In addition, Parallel is organising two conferences on contemporary art and NFTs in collaboration with Feral File on Saturday 12 November and Sunday 13 November. Thanks to the participation of important actors in contemporary art and crypto/ NFT experts, the context and development of these practices will be presented to a broad public.

The Berlin design studio ARGUMENT offers a different perspective on design at the fair. Convinced that design makes a representational contribution to discourses, the office understands objects as arguments. Its collection of furniture and everyday objects condenses essential features of the present and attempts to anticipate design permanence. Each object articulates its own microarchitectural space in relation to its surroundings.
