I met Stina Fisch
on a friday afternoon for a coffee and I had the chance to have a little chat with her. She is Luxembourgish born, she studies design in Holland, and I like chatting with her: she is friendly and spontaneous, as her works. Her sketches have clean graphic, almost childish, with a strong Japanese influence (she stayed in Tokyo for 2 months). Her first work, the one that changed her professional status from designer to artist, regards an important historic event for Luxembourg. Between 1985 and 1986 the State was attack by almost 20 bomb attacks. Stina told me when she heard about it for the first time, she was still at school. Nobody found who was this anonymous bomber (called Bommeleeër in Luxembourgish) until in 2006 came out a big rumor: the anonymous bomber was actually a member of the royal family. Nobody confirmed or denied this news, and all the country was under shock, expecially because Luxembourg’s profile is always mentioned as a perfect country without any scandal. But which country is a real country without scandals? Every single country has at least one. Influenced by this rumor, Stina started to drawn and bring to life “De klenge Bommeleeër” (The little bomb man) a little carachter who is walking round and about in Luxembourg city, ready to explode whenever he wants, as the real anonymous did. Stina print herself 50 books whith a little provocation in the page where the little Bommeleeër is walking in front of the Ducal Palace. This is her only political work, noticed by a journalist that talked about it, so “De klenge Bommeleeër” became famous. And when nobody is expecting it anymore, he appeared again last December, on a magazine about a new, huge scandal in Luxembourgish politcs, just to remember that nobody is perfect. Even the Country who wants to be perfect.
