Temporary Art Gallery

Artists let loose on Luxembourg house

More picture galleries

(JB) A Luxembourg house that will soon be razed has been transformed beyond belief, thanks to a group of artists.

The two-storey building in route de Luxembourg, Lorentzweiler, was fairly unremarkable until a decision was made to demolish it.

That's when innovator Joël Rollinger had the idea to turn the place into a temporary gallery.

He and a group of artists whitewashed the house from top to bottom, including the furniture, before the real work began. Since then artists worked with the blank canvas to exhibit their work and create new pieces.

Among the striking effects are the black striped room, with striped furniture, and trompe l'oeil murals. The gallery is now open to the public every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 10pm. It closes on July 24.
