Thanks to a patron, Aigle installs a sculpture by Alexia Weill on the bank of the Grande-Eau.
The artist, who lived for a few years in Aigle before settling in St-Légier, personally attended the vernissage on Monday, November 11th of his sculpture on the right bank of the Grande-Eau, not far from the Pont Napoléon.
Entitled “Archetype”, the sculpture, made of white marble (1,30 meter high), representing a human head profile, was created as part of the 2019 edition of Art and Nature Ailyos exhibition, deployed between the municipalities of Aigle, Leysin and Col des Mosses in Switzerland.
It is thanks to the contribution of an Aigle patron, in this case Jean-Marc Crousaz, that the City of Aigle was able to acquire this work, as mentioned by the plate of the base for the passers-by who borrows the walk to the Grande-Eau.
With the installation of this sculpture, the Municipality continues its approach to decorate the public space with works of art in the city.
