Casino Luxembourg presents Night Shift, the first solo exhibition by the artist duo FORT to be held outside of Germany. The exhibition was developed especially for the Casino rooms and consists largely of new productions created in Berlin and New York during a studio grant from the Hessische Kulturstiftung in 2016.
The two artists who make up FORT, Alberta Niemann (*1982 in Bremen) and Jenny Kropp (*1978 in Frankfurt am Main), work with everyday objects that they adapt and transfer to the exhibition space. For all their supposed familiarity, the objects and settings created often have a subtly surreal character and evoke an eerie atmosphere of emptiness and desolation. Many of the objects shift between poetic and humorous moments and play with the viewer's usual way of seeing things.
