Laure Tixier: Plaid Houses

With a new research, French artist Laure Tixier is on show at Mudam in Luxembourg until 20 April.

The city and contemporary living are the central themes in the work of French artist Laure Tixier, who explores these subjects through soft watercolours, paintings and video. In her latest project “Plaid Houses” created for Mudam in Luxemberg (on show until 20 April), Tixier continues her exploration on the same themes but with a new medium: fabric.

After creating a kind of graphic catalogue of houses belonging to different social and geographic contexts (from the Mongolian yurt to the modernist avant-garde), she has reconstructed ten examples, incorporating a certain amount of irony, by cutting and sewing together pieces of coloured felt. Her source of inspiration? Children constructing play dens from pieces of material. The exhibition, curated by Marie-Claude Beaud, is the first in the Habiter series. E. S.
