“Wäiss Kaul, an Island in Differdange” is a scenography built from the formwork used for the construction of the sculpture “Wäiss Kaul, a local coral reef” at the Centre nature et forêt Ellergronn, which reproduces a nearby fossilised coral reef. The resulting island in the Paul Wurth Hall – a building that was itself stranded in the Minett Park, since it was dismantled in Luxembourg City to be saved here – will display fossils from the collections of the Musée national d’histoire naturelle (MNHN) that were found in the immediate environment.
Franck Miltgen works in a variety of mediums, resulting in concrete, abstract images, with a focus on large-scale fabric and aluminium formats. For each work, in the field of expanded painting, the technique and the creative process adapt and reinvent themselves. A fundamental presence of the landscape motif and digital imagery, mainly for its documentary value, as well as notions of public space constantly accompany the artist.
Exhibition open from Thursday to Sunday, from 2 to 6 pm from 21st July to 18th September 2022
