Santiago Vinas at Galerie Marianne

5th – 29th April

Santiago Viñas

The artist exudes calmness, a rare tranquility that encourages audiences to take a moment and reflect on their fast-paced, everyday lives. Suffering from an eye condition which could easily put paid to his creations, Viñas embodies the concept of “lacher prise” (letting go). Drawings, paintings, pastels, theatre and poetry, this libertarian allows himself total freedom, and invites you to do the same!

3rd May – 30th May

Sonia Modock

Playing with the relationship between balance and imbalance, Modock brings together music, dance and poetry in this exhibition of bronze statues. A timeless material is given a contemporary make-over, seamlessly blurring realism and surrealism.

Jean Vallon

This self-taught artist pushes himself to the outer limits of his own paradoxes, playing with the loaded gun of creativity and visually manifesting his interrogations; his inner-demons. His surrealist creations are bursting with symbolism, begging to be considered and interpreted according to one’s own perceptions.

Eau, Casa Albera, Galerie Marianne

1st February – 10th September


Water, the source of life, is an integral part of daily life regardless of religion, creed or culture. Between the glittering Mediterranean, the étangs and the thermal springs, water plays a particularly significant role here in the P-O. But it can also represent danger: pirates were once regular visitors to our coastline and floods continue to wreak havoc today. Discover the nature of water, in all its forms, at the Casa de l’Albèra.
