    Ella Maillart in the spotlight at the Rath Museum | City of Geneva

    Through a selection of photographs, articles and other archival documents, rediscover the extraordinary journey of Ella Maillart. This writer, sportswoman, traveler and photographer, born in Geneva in 1903, never ceased to transmit her notion of “unity of the world”.

    More than a tribute, this exhibition, organized in partnership with the Association Friends of Ella Maillart And Photo Elyséewish create bridges between generations. This is why the MAH invited contemporary artists, Anne-Julie Raccoursier and Pauline Julier, to bring their work into dialogue with the life and work of Ella Maillard and open up new perspectives.

    These two artists, with very distinct personalities, take up the challenge: great travelers themselves, their approaches, between reality and fiction, in turn deconstruct the clichés.

    Anne-Julie Raccoursier

    Anne-Julie Raccoursier’s work consists of conceptual interventions, videos and installations. In her works, she is interested in questions of identity, paradoxes, entertainment culture and its rituals, as well as the art of movement. For her, the figure of Ella Maillart is that of a non-conformist who chose her destiny and forged her life in complete independence. To resonate with the work of Ella Maillart, Anne-Julie Raccoursier takes the opportunity to bring together recent and older pieces of her work.

    Pauline Julier

    This artist and filmmaker explores the way stories, rituals, knowledge and images create and animate connections between humans and their environment. His installations and films combine elements from different origins to restore the complexity of our relationships with the world. On the occasion of the invitation from the MAH, Pauline Julier delves into her archives to redeploy one of her first films, “La Disparition des Aïtus” (2014).
