Site-specific installation by Adrien Vescovi

Luxembourg Art Week, Restaurant, Café Adrien

On the occasion of Luxembourg Art Week, Adrien Vescovi was invited to produce a series of works for the restaurant area that will be visible throughout the duration of the fair. Concurrent to the fair, Casino Luxembourg is presenting a large-scale site-specific installation by the artist.

Adrien Vescovi (b. 1981, lives and works in Marseille) graduated from the École supérieure d’art de l’agglomération d’Annecy) revisits the painterly trope of the free (i.e. unframed) canvas and conceives paintings on an architectural and natural scale. His works are produced using various natural elements (ochres and plants) and alchemical processes (cooking, infusions…). The context in which they are installed plays an essential role in his practice, as the colours and textures of his works are largely determined by the influences of their surroundings (weather, light, etc.), as the artist makes chance his ally.
