Aigle - Visites et tours guidés
The Espace Graffenried offers a guided tour of the exhibitions located in the former Town Hall of Aigle.
In the downstairs room, "Estelle Gattlen. Vis-à-vis" is a stroll through the city, throughout the day, according to the moments that punctuate it: the city wakes up, it lives, it goes to bed. Like windows, Estelle Gattlen's illustrations and animations give us a glimpse of the everyday scenes of these characters painted in acrylic and watercolour or drawn on the computer. In a building, behind a shop window, on public transport or in public places, the paintings of life follow one another and certain figures of the Valaisan artist accompany us along this journey, finding themselves in several moments of the day.Vis-à-vis highlights the importance of the daily story, of everyday scenes that are a priori banal, and Estelle Gattlen reminds us here - as often in her work - that there is so much to say in each story. »
In the upstairs room, "Eugene Burnand. A travers champs": "A Waldensian artist known during his lifetime both nationally and internationally, Eugène Burnand (1850-1921) was a draftsman, illustrator, engraver and painter.
The Eugène Burnand exhibition. Through the Fields is the result of a collaboration between the Eugène Burnand Museum in Moudon, his native land, and the Espace Graffenried in Aigle. Far from being a retrospective, it proposes a journey through the different techniques and subjects of the artist's predilection. The exhibition also reveals newly restored drawings as well as works recently acquired or deposited at the Moudon Museum.
February 4, 2021 marks the 100th anniversary of the death of Eugène Burnand. »
