Arendt & Art Event
Beat Streuli's photographic and video-based exhibition "World City" is on view at Arendt & Medernach from Saturday, 21 November 2015 and every Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. until 3 April 2016.
Beat Streuli is a Swiss visual artist who works with photo and video based media. His photographs, videos and window installations have been exhibited in galleries and museums internationally.
Since the 1990s, every shot taken by the artist, while founded in a solid conceptual framework, inevitably invites us to plunge into the spontaneous movement of daily life in the city. These photographs also bear witness to the artist’s awareness of the places he appropriates here: Moscow, Dubai, Hong Kong and, in earlier videos, also in London and New York, the five cities where Arendt & Medernach has an international presence.
The permanent installation at Arendt House, on the auditorium’s windows, displays a complex composition of images from Dubai, Moscow and Hong Kong as well, in which people and abstract elements combine with Arabic, Chinese, Cyrillic and Latin Texts. Through their transparency and layers, these images originating from the new financial centres situated astride East and West, between Europe and Asia, blend with the flow of Luxembourg traffic and passers-by.
