Bidons Sans Frontières in Nendaz

Milk churns at the heart of an exhibition and artistic animations.

Bidons Sans Frontières, what is it?


It is quite simply the crazy idea of the French-Swiss photographer, Gérard Benoît à la Guillaume, to give life to more than 200 milk churns. Whether in the mountains, in the desert or even down town, the churns become real personalities whose primary role is to underline the beauty of a landscape or or an infrastructure.

This summer, Bidons Sans Frontières will make a stop at Nendaz for an exhibition as well as installations in situ.

More information concerning Gérard Benoît à la Guillaume and his churns on www.bidonssansfrontieres.com

Exhibition of photos from 19 July to 17 August 


Discover about thirty works realised by the photographer Gérard Benoît à la Guillaume at Nînd'Art. We look forward to seeing you there from the Thursday to the Sunday from 4pm to 7pm. The opening ceremony will take place in the presence of the artist on Friday 19 July at 6pm.

A treasure hunt, in the heart of the Maison de la Culture, will equally help you to discover the exhibition in an amusing way with your family.
