The Project

EN HAUT is dedicated to contemporary art and the environment in the Pays d’Enhaut, Switzerland. We present unique artistic projects to create cultural and social exchanges. To this end, theoretical and practical art workshops related to the work of the artists exhibited are offered for young audiences. These moments of sharing take place for the youngest to access rich and varied themes, in order to create awakenings and the discovery of contemporary art.

Current Future Past

Through her photographic work, Lara-Scarlett Gervais provides a way to go beyond images and allows to revive the Palmyrenian Empire. WARKA is an exhibition that questions destruction and reconstruction. It is also the awareness of the Judeo-Christian heritage and the richness of the ancient archaeological heritage. The journey to which the photographer invites us goes beyond material borders, touching the sensitivity and awakening the child who sleeps in everyone.

Frédéric Ansermet

July 18, 2021

As an artistic director, Frédéric Ansermet has manipulated a large number of concepts related to art in its representation, but also how it has been put at the service of the “consumer society”. It is by breaking away from this environment that the artist has been able to develop an approach of his own and unique to him. He devotes himself to the work of artistic pieces questioning raw nature, which he recycles and transforms.
The artist’s work aims to reveal raw plant matter as it is, as part of a movement inspired by nature. It is also questioning the impact that we inflict on our environment, how do we modify it? What is the true nature of this supposedly dead, inert matter, synonymous with waste and perdition?

You are an artist. You love art and nature.
You eat & think «local», you sort your waste.
You love children and pass on your knowledge.
If you are looking for a residency, it’s here in Switzerland in the middle of the mountains. We offer residency: from one week to four weeks.
Artists in the areas of sculptures, paintings, music, literature, theatre and dance are eligible to apply.
The residency gives the opportunity for the artists to gain a broad insight into a different cultural environment. The aim of the residency is to find inspiration surrounded by nature, and contemplate new projects and ideas around the importance of nature conservation, the agricultural world.
In return, the artist will give his time to contribute his talent to local life by passing on his knowledge in particular to the children. If the artist is musician or danser, concerts/performances and classes for children will be organised. If he is a painter or sculptor he will give a work to En Haut.
Selection criteria
• convincing track record: personal artistic activity above and beyond local level
• context-related motivation
Applications for residency can be submitted at any time.
Applications should contain:
• a cover letter explaining the artistic approach
• a detailed description of the project that will be developed during the residency
