“Sans titre, still dancing on John Wayne’s head” by Bruno Peinado.


25 September 2010 – 9 January 2011 – Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain

At a turning point in his artistic career, Bruno Peinado (*1970) seizes the opportunity provided by this solo exhibition to sum up the last decade of frantic creation and production. The artist, an insatiable consumer of all types of images that are as many reference points in his works, casts his gaze on his own work to review its reading and to set new perspectives. For this exhibition, some old pieces are revisted in order to interact with new productions. This baroque project questions the artworks‘ status as well as the exhibition dogma. The exhibition space of Casino Luxembourg – entirely occupied by the artist – does not just house the artworks but actively participates, sometimes highlighting them and sometimes placing them in shadow. Visitors thus are really involved in discovering the exhibition and find themselves carried away by the discoveries made on route. A monograph on Bruno Peinado will be published on the occasion of the exhibition. With texts by Julien Fronsacq (curator, Palais de Tokyo, Paris), Patrice Joly (editor in chief and director of the art magazine 02), Aude Launay (art critic), Clio Lavau (curator), Mick Peter (artist), and Kevin Muhlen (artistic director of Casino Luxembourg – Forum d’art contemporain)
