For the first time, the works of seven artists photographers produced under SMArt programme are gathered at the Médiathèque Valais Martigny and take us « on sensitive land”. The artists in residence in Valais – or from the region – express, with their images, the major challenges of sustainable development. Their looks linger over the mountains that surround us and then reveal vulnerable areas, despite a first impression of strength. Photographic explorations are taking shape and, in different styles, tell the journey of water, the melting of glaciers, the still wild landscapes or pastures transformed into resorts. The Médiathèque Valais complete these aesthetic approaches with brief audiovisual memories, archive movies and old photographs, which remind us of the frozen lakes, the harvesting of rye, the seasonal migration or the song of a bisse.
