Upcoming exhibition

Déserteur 2021

Dates : from the 27th of August 2021 to the 2nd of January 2022

Charles-Frédéric Brun, nicknamed le Déserteur, arrived in Nendaz in the middle of the 19th century. Thanks to his colourful paintings, he brought a little joy into the farmers' modest homes which were built, at that time, with very low ceilings and tiny windows. In exchange, the villagers gave him a bowl of soup and a crust of bread. He lived homeless, hiding from the police between Nendaz and the val d’Hérens, until he died in 1871. 

Le Déserteur 2021 is a series of events celebrating the 150th anniversary of the death of Charles-Frédéric Brun, otherwise known as the Déserteur. The entire project was initiated and coordinate by Yvan Fournier, vice-president of the 'Association pour la Sauvegarde du Patrimoine Nendard' (ASPN). It consist of :

  • The publication of a comic book, "Le Déserteur", by Simon Tschopp and Daniel Varenne
  • The publication of a special issue catalogue, "Charles-Frédéric Brun, known as the Déserteur", by Bernard Wyder
  • The staging of a musical show "Les couleurs du désert", by Jean-Charles Pitteloud and Marie Héritier
  • The setting up of an exhibition "Le Déserteur", at Nînd’Art, by l’ASPN 
  • The creation of a themed footpath, the "Sentier du Déserteur" at Haute-Nendaz
