Residency

 

Olaf Otto Becker, in residence in the heart of the Gruyère Pays-d’Enhaut Natural Regional Park

The famous landscape artist, Olaf Otto Becker (Germany 1959), renowned for his visions of Ireland and Greenland, has been invited to make a portrait of the Gruyère Pays-d’Enhaut Natural Regional Park Naturel Régional . He was chosen for the breathtaking beauty of his work, a beauty which nonetheless reminds us that nature is being radically modified by climate change (his series ” Above Zero ” deals with the melting of the ice in Greenland). In Switzerland, Olaf Otto Becker is working closely with the Gruyère Pays-d’Enhaut Natural Regional Park.

The photographs taken during the residency are presented in a central location during the festival.
