Life has its own course. After a one-year postponement, the French-Moroccan photographer and architect Zineb Andress Arraki spends her artist residency from January to March 2021 in the mountain village of Bellwald. A confined winter. The artist takes advantage of this unusual situation to capture through her photographs the atmosphere of this mountain winter: the heavily snow-covered landscapes, the remoteness and silence of the village, the seclusion of inhabitants.
While her architectural photographs revolve around the concepts of « house » and « home », Arraki is inspired by painting in her photographs of nature and landscape. In the reflective snow that hides things underneath it and only gradually releases them, in this nature that slowly comes to life, time runs its course almost without being noticed.
