MINERALS

Andrea Mancini (LU)

Fri 24.02 – Sun 26.02

In his project Minerals, Italian-Luxembourg artist Andrea Mancini explores the fascinating world of minerals and the force of their interaction with humans.

Minerals are deeply connected to Luxembourg’s history and played a central role last century with the iron and steel activity in the Grand Duchy and the border regions. Minerals are also deemed to be part of a not-so-distant future with the concept of space mining, in which Luxembourg wishes to be a main actor. These research areas were the starting point for this artistic creation, which is fuelled by scientific viewpoints and documentation.

In his performance, Andrea Mancini manipulates visuals generated from scientific images mixed with organic sound recordings, creating a gentle symbiosis between organic and digital and immersing the audience in a contemplative atmosphere.

The Minerals project is a collaboration with geology researchers from the Uni.lu and was made possible thanks to the Fond Start-Up, Luxembourg art prize.

Created with the support of Rotondes (Multiplica 2022 residency).
