Casino Display


A place of work, of research, of exchanges and orientation, with the aim of encouraging and supporting young creatives. The programme at Casino Display is arranged by Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain.

By agreement with the Ministry of Culture and with the aim of expanding its reach, from February 2021 Casino Luxembourg has taken over managing the programme for the Konschthaus Beim Engel gallery, now known as Casino Display.

In the absence of art schools in Luxembourg and of relatively institutionalised contemporary art, it was vital to create a platform aimed at promoting the freshest creativity and of supporting the young creatives of today and tomorrow.

One of the roles of Casino Display will be to offer orientation for young people, enabling them to familiarise themselves more easily with the range of creative courses on offer in art schools and the variety of opportunities out there. With this in mind, the Casino Display programme particularly envisages encouraging cross-fertilisation between practices and interdisciplinary encounters.

In parallel with this, a talent search will be undertaken throughout the year in the four schools of art with which Casino Luxembourg has forged partnerships (ÉSAL – École supérieure d’art de Lorraine, Metz/Épinal; ENSAD – École nationale supérieure d’art et de design, Nancy; HEAR – Haute École des arts du Rhin, Strasbourg/Mulhouse; HBKsaar – Hochschule der Bildenden Künste Saar, Saarbrücken). This talent search and dialogue will be conducted with, at its heart, the possibility for the selected students to exhibit at Casino Display.

Casino Display also offers a six-month artist residency. It is part of the natural evolution and continuous development of the residency programme that Casino Luxembourg has pursued since 2010. The residency at Casino Display is primarily intended as a time of research and dialogue.

A holder of a national postgraduate degree in visual arts (DNSEP) in communication from the École nationale supérieure d’art et de design (ENSAD) in Nancy, Océane Muller (b. 1999, lives and works in Metz) defines herself as a graphic designer and author. Aesthetics, alternative cultures and their impact on design, the pure virtuosity of the line and the clear line, or more simply the pleasure of graphic experimentation, are issues she raises and develops in her practice. She mainly works with digital drawing, 3D design, video and montage photography. 

Video: Cascade (2022)

"My graphic style involves the invention of a universe of forms evoking an ecology of living forms, both animal and vegetable. The creation of this fictional universe allows me to develop the ornamental qualities that I seek for my drawing. Cascade is the main element of my diploma project. It focuses on the creation of an animated video clip accompanying the track Grow from the album HANA by Cifika, a South Korean techno trance artist. This fully produced, drawn and animated video is also a reflection on the economy of time adapted to a medium as greedy as the moving image."

Living up to its mission as a Space for Artistic Research, between September 2023 and February 2024 Casino Display will organise the second edition of its Artistic Research Lab. Based on a practice-led approach to knowledge production, Casino Display will become a transdisciplinary meeting point where a selected group of art students can rely on the logic of experimentation for the emergence of unchartered knowledge. Students will have the possibility to think with and experiment along professionals of the art world, whilst proposing a space for trying out unfinished ideas, probing freshly sketched concepts, or reversing solid ontologies in favour of more flexible ones. In short, the goal is to create a space where the drive for experimentation encourages knowledge.  

Milieus of [Fictions] in Milieus  

While milieus are perceptual worlds in which evolve human and non-human beings alike, fictions are stories, technologies or systems that are created as a support to hold and to explore the unknown. Artists intervene on both levels, by questioning the fictions holding old meanings in place, fictionning alternatives, engaging in fictional and conceptual displacement.  

After Experimental Re(é)[flex|ct|ion] Expérimentale in 2022-23, this second edition of the Artistic Research Lab will investigate worlds of unknown realities, which are yet to be fully articulated but that are nonetheless perceivable. We will explore how fiction can be used as a research method creating its own milieu while spreading into others. We will focus on the potential of artistic research as a way to move out of the confines of language by relying on direct engagement with materiality, concepts, thoughts, affects, and feelings, in order to confront systems of knowledge and to create new narratives.
