Born in Luxembourg in 1967 – studies sculpture and multimedia technics in Brussels (La Cambre) and Prague (Academy of fine arts) till 1997 – lives and works in Luxembourg – sculpture, installation, drawing, performance, vidéo, public orders, set design – artist residences in France, Germany, Hungary, Holland and Japan – founding member and president of the visual artists association Luxembourg (aapl.lu)

A travers de nombreuses pratiques artistiques et une grande diversité de matériaux, Trixi Weis crée des œuvres racontant chacune une histoire. Même si l’artiste rejette le travail en série, son œuvre révèle certains fils conducteurs tels que les contes de fées en début de carrière ou les installations in situ à caractère éphémère dans des environnements naturels. D’autres créations ayant comme sujet et matière la nourriture sont interactives. Trixi Weis se met volontiers en scène elle-même dans des performances, des vidéos et des petites sculptures cinétiques, sur les thèmes de la solitude, des fêtes, de l’amour et de la sexualité. Elle crée régulièrement des scénographies pour le théâtre et la danse. Plus récemment, elle réalise des sculptures monumentales, notamment pour des bâtiments publics. Toutes ses œuvres, même celles abordant des sujets plus graves et qui critiquent notre société, intègrent presque toujours une note d’humour faisant de Trixi « …une artiste espiègle, gentiment subversive »
