Luxembourg - Mudam - Just love me - Regard sur une collection privée08/10/2010
October 9, 2010 - January 30, 2011
Just Love Me is the first edition of a series of exhibitions showing the diversity of approaches in collecting contemporary art, in and out of Luxembourg. Every exhibition is a subjective view, by one or several curators of Mudam, on a private collection.
For the first part of Regard sur une collection privée, Mudam chose a collectors couple who, already a number of years ago, started to modestly gather artworks they liked. In their house, from one room to another, sometimes in corners, one comes across famous, even historic, artists such as Donald Judd and Andy Warhol rubbing shoulders with emerging talents. This makes for a extraordinarily free and eclectic collection, the central thread of which is the intuition of the person who carefully selects the pieces, but also the intimate relationship maintained with the artworks, an attachment that Tracey Emin's piece aptly sums up: "Just Love me" murmurs the neon hanging over the kitchen door.
Participating artists: Wim Delvoye, Eddy De Vos, Jan Fabre, Luc Tuymans, among many others.
