Exhibition - The radiance of disaster - Stephanie Montes

Last spring, SMArt welcomed the Colombian photographer Stephanie Montes (1991) in residence at the Crochetan Theater. During her stay in Monthey, the photographer explored several themes inspired by the impavid nature. Her singular gaze has been set on our environment, to highlight the vital link that unites mankind and nature. Worrying and attractive at the same time, the universes she has immortalized instantly capture our gaze. Her landscapes, full of strangeness, emanate a feeling of solitude. At the same time, Stephanie Montes discovered moving family photographs from archives and photo albums from the Valais, which she chose for their emotional potential. Like emanations of presence, the family photographs associated with the desolate expanses thus participate in a subtle “encounter”.
