Following a call for projects by the Ministry of Culture for the 2016 artist residency at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, eight proposals were submitted. The jury, made up of Valerie Quilez (Chair), Aline Bouvy and Jo Kox, met on Monday, 11 April 2016. The jury emphasised the high quality and relevance of the submitted proposals. Unanimously, the jury decided to award this residence to Carine Krecké.
News as object of art
Carine Krecké lives and works in Luxembourg. With her project "état(s) d'urgence" (state(s) of emergency), Carine Krecké wants to explore the notion of state of emergency in the current French context and more broadly in the European context. Following the same approach, close to the documentary, which is found in the artist's other projects, especially when working otgether with Elisabeth Krecké, research, investigation and questioning will be at the heart of her method during these three months.
The residence in October, Novemer and December will allow Carine Krecké to be able to immerse herself into this theme in connection with an immediate reality and at the same time also ask the question of the handling and necessary distance to find, in order to expose the facts of events which are so immediate and so present.
The Ministry of Culture, the owner of a quarter of a housing workshop at the Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris since 1963, regularly launches calls for proposals as part of its residency programme in Paris. Apart from the access to this studio, the Ministry also grants a work scholarship to the selected artist.
If you want to experience Carine and Elisabeth Krecké's art, then visit the exhibition '404 Not Found', which is currently on display at the National Audiovisual Centre in Dudelange until 15 May 2016.
