Evolène's Carnival Masks Sculptor:: Hugo Beytrison

Special Dedications to the genious sculptor from Les Haudères

This exhibition is inspired by ancestral carnival culture through contemporary art medias, video and mixed media printed artworks with traditional carnival figures.

The carnival in the Swiss Alps is a reflection and left over of pagan traditions, recalling on animist cultures relating to rituals and celebrations close to nature. The Celtic traditions seem to have been active until the Middle Ages and are still carried by folk celebrations which gave birth to the carnivals as we know them these days.
