One Exhibition: Thirteen Artists
10.12.2017 – 14.10.2018
Just for once, the Maison d’Ailleurs showcases throughout the museum the works of thirteen contemporary international artists who have in common the reclaiming of the Star Wars myth: Dan Aetherman, Cédric Delsaux, Gabriel Dishaw, Travis Durden, Kyle Hagey, Stephane Halleux, Jodi Harvey, Hyperactive Studio, Anthony Knapik-Bridenne, Benoit Lapray, Alexandre Nicolas, The Sucklord, Superlife, have all approached this myth in their own special way. However, they do not do so in order to present yet another version of this galaxy far, far away, but to elicit other causes, different perspectives: for example, the relationship between reality and fiction, the LGBT movement, a critique of the picturesque, the transformation of everyday life into giant LEGO sets, or the making of myths and idols. So visitors to the Maison d’Ailleurs are not offered a journey into the universe of Star Wars, but rather a reflection on the capacity of myths, both ancient and modern, to shed light on our daily lives, our society and our existence.
