Doris Drescher

In 2001, it is Doris Drescher’s turn to exhibit in the Ca’ del Duca and represent Luxembourg at the Venice Biennale. For the first time, the Ministry of Culture assigns the administration of the exhibition to a cultural institution, Mudam, still then in its planning phase. In fact, up to this point, the artists and curators did not have a trained team to ensure the correct functioning and supervision of operations. Thanks to the structural support of Mudam, the organization and mediatisation of Luxembourg’s entry becomes professionalized in line with the importance of this international event. Doris Drescher’s project is titled Casa Mia. Through her intimate, precise and sensitive work, the artist transforms the site into a poetic metaphor for a domestic space. The exhibition rooms become her dining room, her lounge, her bathroom, her kitchen. The viewer discovers an interior world peopled with drawings, short statements written on the walls, objects, installations and films. The whole reveals a delicate sensibility engaged with the outside world.
