Rémi Schweizer

Born in Mulhouse in 1961, Schweizer found his calling very early in life. Dabbling in romanticism, cubism, geometric lyricism… he explored many different genres before finally realising that his passion was colour and light. Now resident in Port Vendres, whether figurative or abstract, his work, inspired by the Roussillon region, studies the material, the essence of his subjects, with an interaction between the fluid and the solid.

A l’heure allemand

In celebration of the 30th anniversary of the town’s twinning with the German town of Hürth, the Galerie Marianne exhibits two German artists.

Romain Burgy

This French-born artist has been resident in Cologne for over 30 years and has an immediately-recognisable artistic style. His bold, thick gouache paintings, on paper or card, in vibrant colours represents his persistent optimism. Signing each of his works with a winged lemon, his ‘signature’ visually represents his personal motto: when life gives you lemons, make lemonade. His passion for painting architecture has led to this exciting, joyful celebration of urbanity, far from grey and monotonous!

Nabil Gharsallah

A prodigy! At barely 22 years old, this talented artist has more than just one string to his bow. Apprentice in the studio of Romain Burgy for the past 5 years, Gharsallah continues and develops his instructor’s passion for humanity. His portraits radiate optimism and each face brings a liveliness and vivacity that will brighten your day.

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.
