About

Marc PIERRARD (1974)

Born in Esch-sur-Alzette, Luxembourg

Lives & works in Kayl, LUX

 

 

I used to play the guitar in a band, called dEFDUMp, from 1993 until 2008. Over the years, I learned a lot about different computer programs, video, photography, printing techniques and was introduced to a large palette of mediums, which now mostly find their way into my work.The greater part of my works are large multimedia installations. While the primary accent is set on the paintings and photographs, sculptures and different «props», aswell as selfproduced videos or sound backgrounds, are used to set them in extented contexts. Some of my installations are walkable sceneries, in which the viewer becomes , for a short periode of time, part of the work. In more recent works, the role of the spectator becomes increasingly important. Those artworks take their shape by or with the intervention of the visitor.The wide range of techniques and mediums that I gathered over the years, allow me to adapt my different bodies of work, visually, to the treated subject matters.

 

My work includes drawings, collages, paintings, sculptures, video- and sound-installations... The only constant being an ongoing engagement with Mankind / Art, its history, its heroes and its debaucheries.
