TWINGI 23 – Art in the Twingi Gorge

Language navigation

Exhibition information:

The historic street leading through the Twingi Gorge in the Binntal Valley is regarded as an architectural monument of national importance. Twingi has also been a place of art since 2007. This summer, the 17th TWINGI (formerly TWINGI LAND ART) brings contemporary art to the Valais mountains once again. Thirteen artists from Switzerland and abroad depict the unique natural and cultural landscape of the Binn Valley and create special local sculptures, installations and interventions along the popular hiking trail, establishing a dialogue with the environment.

The exhibition can be viewed on an easy, approx. one-hour walk along the old road through the Twingi Gorge. You can stop off for a bite to eat in the hamlet of Ze Binne and the village of Binn. You can get the free exhibition guide from tourist offices in Ernen and Binn and it is also available at the exhibition’s two starting points.

For the first time, TWINGI also has a satellite in the village centre of Grengiols with an installation by Sibylla Walpen.
