When preparing his residence, Btihal Remli proposed to work on mountain farming. Based on her personal experience in the mountains of Morocco, she thought she could document the remnants of a vernacular activity in the Valais Alps. But once there, she was confronted with a different reality, far from idealized images conveyed by marketing and tourism. This tension between a vernacular that became a brand and the contemporaneity of the ways of life and production in the mountain is the central theme of the work of Btihal Remli. Her photographs highlight the new dynamics at play in the mountains, between tradition and modernity.
