On September 17, 2010, Mudam takes part in the first "Park(ing) Day" citizen action and invites the artist Trixi Weis to invest public space, more precisely a parking space in the district of the central station of Luxembourg City.
Trixi Weiss transforms "her" parking spot into a video installation. On a road sign screen, a hand communicates with the passers by and shows us a sign language used between motorists, whether it is nice, indicative, premonitory or insulting.
Hermetically locked up in our favorite toy, the car, we learned how to express ourselves thanks to rudimentary means of communication and physical actions translating our states of mind.
Just before her monographic exhibition at the Gallery Nei Liicht in Dudelange, Trixi Weis gives us a preview of this new work thanks to a device adapted to the public space.
Trixi Weiss was born in Luxembourg in 1967. She lives and works in Luxemburg.
