Pictures to raise
Awareness on the challenges
Facing Mountain Regions



Exhibition En terrain sensible - Extension at HES-SO, Sierre - 28th April – 10th September 2016

Launched in 2014 by the Foundation for sustainable development in mountain regions (FDDM), the SMArt programme (Sustainable Mountain Art) seeks to raise awareness of the challenges of the mountains through art and artists.
The original works of seven photographers-artists, welcomed in residency in Valais or from the region, were brought together for the first time at the Médiathèque Valais – Martigny this spring.
These looks linger over the mountains that surround us, reveal vulnerable territories, 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-Martigny points these aesthetical approaches of short memories with artistic or documentary photos.
A multiplication of perspectives that lead us into sensitive terrain.


An exhibition to discover, or rediscover, in the premises of HES-SO Valais Wallis in Sierre (Rue de la Plaine 2), from 28th April to 10th September 2016.
Free access: Monday to Friday 8h00 – 19h00, Saturday 08h00-17h00.
Launched as part of the EnergyForum 28th April 2016 at 19H30
Finishing at the symposium “Château d’eau”, 9th and 10th September 2016
