Insert coins (Sète)
From 2016-05-04 to 2016-05-22

C’est de stupeur qu’a été frappé le photographe Christian Lutz au cours de ses multiples voyages dans la ville qui ne s’éteint jamais. Son observation incisive tranche alors le vernis des illusions et des joies artificielles, laissant apparaître des individus isolés, recrachés par des casinos carnassiers, comme autant de fracas silencieux. À Las Vegas, tout semble possible, et surtout l’indifférence. « Insert Coins est un blues, un râle », selon les propres mots de l’auteur. Son rythme est mélancolique et sombre, intimement travaillé par une poésie qui rend...

POWER (Barcelona)
From 2014-05-19 to 2014-06-21

The exhibition “Power” is the product of a three-fold investigation. It explores the forms of power in the worlds of politics, economics and religion.

In Jesus name (Zürich)
From 2014-05-09 to 2014-06-01

By immersing himself within the religious community of ICF, Christian Lutz introduced himself in a truly alternative society, brilliantly organized. What he thought would be a closed environment, with its codes and beliefs, quickly appears to be of a fascinating complexity. Widely open to the outside world thanks to an active proselytism, the Church is revealing of the world’s issues: loss of points of reference and values, need to be part of a group, thoughts on how to live together and the necessity to counter individualism, mutual aid and solidarity within the community. Through sharp...

In Jesus name (Liège)
From 2014-03-15 to 2014-05-25

Seeing and believing will be the two keywords for BIP2014, the 9th staging of the Biennial, entitled PIXELS OF PARADISE. Images are always an ambiguous source of promises. Images lie and tell the truth at the same time. Their powers of enchantment and proof go hand-in-hand. It is this unwavering link that BIP2014 will attempt to explore through an eclectic artistic selection where both mystification and the sacred are in play, being, as they so often are, bound together. By immersing himself within the religious community of ICF, Christian Lutz introduced himself in a truly alternative...

The protocol, if we wanted to paraphrase Henri Bergson, is the mechanical encrusted on the policy. A mechanical always well oiled, the chance is never appropriate in these ceremonials, all makes sense, and everything must be thought, anticipated. The ceremony starched expresses the importance of the issues, the dramatization of the action...
