Mike Bourscheid’s sculpture-and performance-based practice involves his fabrication of ungainly or ridiculous appendages and prosthetics, in order to channel alternate personae as a device for addressing aspects of his own Luxembourgian heritage, as well as notions of masculinity, European pomposity, and patriarchal power. Bourscheid represented Luxembourg at the 57th Venice Biennale in 2017, and his recent exhibitions include Haverford Centre Philadelphia (USA), Kunstverein Braunschweig (Germany), Nanaimo Art Gallery and Casino Luxembourg-Forum d’art contemporain. His upcoming projects include a performance in collaboration with Justine Chambers at Western Front (Vancouver), a solo at the Richmond Art Gallery and a group exhibition at the MNHA (Luxembourg).
