Lët'z Arles (Luxembourg)
3 July - 24 September 2017
10.00 AM - 07.30 PM
The title Flux Feelings poetically captures the key concepts of light, movement and sensations that underpin the curatorial choice in the exhibition at the Chapelle de la Charité à Arles. In an exhibition and a series of meetings to mark its first participation in the Rencontres, the association Lët’z Arles will present the photographic creativity of Luxembourg – a country whose very name contains the most fundamental element of photography: lux or ’light’. Transposed to the context of Arles and the legendary Provençal light that has inspired so many artists, the exhibition will also focus on the notion of ‘territory’ – one of the themes of this year’s festival. Inside the space, the Luxembourg team will invite visitors to be caught up in a flow of images, conjuring up a landscape that’s both multi-faceted and shattered in myriad fragments. These contemporary artistic positions, created within a structure set up in situ, enter into a dialogue with works and documents taken from important collections, revealing a dynamic photography scene and a constantly changing panorama in (f)luxembourg.
