Martine Feipel & Jean Bechameil (Artists)
The work of Martine FEIPEL & Jean BECHAMEIL adresses the question of space.
In 2011 they were selected to represent Luxembourg in the 54th Venice Biennale. Their work shows in a destructive manner, the hidden complexity of the ideas in the traditional way of constructing space. At the same time, their work also opens a perception for an alternative reflection. In their work, art and society go hand and hand.
