YOU ARE HERE
When people come here, they always ask three questions:
1) who are those two men with the moustaches;
2) who thought of hanging their portraits in this abandoned factory; and 3) what is this bench doing here? So here are the answers.
The two handsome gentlemen are Hubert and Oliver. They got married in Differdange and are the first homosexual couple in Luxembourg. The idea to hang their portraits is... ours. "Bright People Art": we go around the world intervening places to share our portraits of people who shine (inside and out). And the bench is there for you to kiss and celebrate love is an endangered species .
Although we could also say that this factory has been waiting for decades for you to come and visit, just as Henri and Jean-Paul had to wait to be allowed to get married. We, ourselves, have taken a lifetime to get here with our art. The important thing is that, one way or another, you are here, together, with a bit of intimacy.
