Casino Display

About

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.

In residence

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.

Artist in residence

Océane Muller (March 2023)

A DNSEP graduate from the Ecole Nationale Supérieure d'Art et de Design de Nancy in the Communication option since last June, Océane Muller defines herself as a graphic designer and author. The question of 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 all subjects that she questions and develops in her practice. She works mainly 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."

Research

September 2022 - February 2023
Experimental Re(é)[flex|ct|ion] Expérimentale

Casino Display aims to grow into an alternative educational space based on a practice-led artistic approach to research and knowledge production. By tapping into the institutional expertise of Casino Luxembourg, it will offer a small cohort of selected or recently graduated students the possibility to think with and experiment along art professionals, whilst proposing a space for trying out unfinished ideas, probing freshly sketched concepts, or reversing solid ontologies in favour of fluid and wet ones. In short, it is about creating a space in which the drive for experimentation as a vector for learning can flourish.

For the Open Labs, the space of experimentation at Casino Display will be open for the public to visit and to meet the participants, to exchange on their projects and ideas.
