Ephemeral Art - Before the demolition of 3, Rue Quartier...

Just a few weeks before the house at 3, Rue Quartier, in Esch-Sur-Alzette in Luxembourg is demolished, a group of Luxembourg artists have decided to transform the premises into a unique and transient art exhibition.

Graffiti art, mural paintings, film projections, sculptures, every room presents a surprise to the visitor. Knowing that all these works have been created and can be viewed for only a short time, adds to the mystic of the place as if a message has to be transmitted and understood before the fall. Some exhibits question language and visual interpretation, some are works of quiet desperation as good old Thoreau once said. Let this be the first of many such initiatives in the future.
