Catalogue and artist's book, 360 pages

Éditions Mudam, Luxembourg
A book/catalogue designed as an atlas in a process at once individual, collective and interactive. The project involved a catalogue for a group exhibition, personal research on graphic grids exploring the notion of variability, and a note pad. When the book is opened, the images and texts are not immediately apparent; the uncut pages must be slit to reveal the contents. The only visible elements are the grids used in composing the book, one grid for each artist.

Portugal Agora – À propos des lieux d’origine
16.12.2006 – 07.05.2007
The history of the Grand Duchy is closely related to that of immigration. The Portuguese community accounts for almost 40% of the foreign community and constitutes 14% of the population of Luxembourg. Perfectly integrated, this community, including its younger generation, preserves a strong relationship with its country of origin. À propos des lieux d’origine (About the places of origin), a title borrowed from a work by Pedro Cabrita Reis (Mudam Collection), glances on different generations of the Portuguese artistic scene. Through various media - photography, video, painting, sculpture, installation - the exhibition paints with broad features the portrait of a creative and dynamic country with which Luxembourg maintains a close relationship.
