After the colourful umbrellas floating above Rue Phillipe II in 2014, “Look up” day-glow spider’s web in 2015 and “Swings” by Luxembourg artist Max Mertens in 2016, Casino Luxembourg has invited seven international artists to participate in 2017 of the competition organised by the Association rue Philippe II in partnership with the City of Luxembourg. For this year’s edition, the jury chose the temporary installation “Air Deluxe” by HeHe.
The installation resembles a sky of ‘clouds’ formed and created from breathing tubes. These clouds are a sort of poetic metaphor for pure and fresh air which has become a ‘luxury product’ in many cities throughout the world.
The English-speaking couple Helen Evans and Heiko Hansen (HeHe) discuss in their work the problems of air pollution, as well as the illusory and utopian will of man to tame nature and to master at the same time weather conditions.

“Photography is a major force in explaining man to man”- Edward Steichen
I had such a great time visiting the exhibition “The Family of Man” – Edward Steichen collections – in Clervaux Castle, Luxembourg.
The exhibition comprises 503 photographs by 273 artists from 68 countries and was created by Edward Steichen for the New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA). Today it’s permanently installed in Clervaux Castle.
