As part of its Extra-mural project, the Festival Alt. +1000 has joined forces with the Château de Gruyères to offer its visitors an additional site in the neighbouring canton of Fribourg.
The work of Edgar Martins will be on display in the medieval village of Gruyères until March 2016. The collection The Wayward Line brings together a previously unpublished selection of the artist’s best works, a dramatic contrast with their medieval setting.
Finely detailed and meticulously crafted, the photographs interrogate the notion of territory through the theme of the sub-prime crisis in the USA. Through his views of sites abandoned in the middle of construction works, Edgar Martins unveils an intriguing world of half-started projects and crumbling creations
