La Galerie éphémère is a highly anticipated and immensely popular event in the Montpellier region. Set within the serene natural beauty of the old saltworks of Villeneuve les Maguelonnes, this event has transformed an abandoned house into a canvas for countless artists over the years. It was my honor to participate in the 10th edition of this incredible project.
Nestled within the former salt industry site lies a sprawling 300 hectares of wetland, teeming with an array of extraordinary flora and fauna, all nestled within the picturesque lagoon landscape.
This remarkable event is a testament to the dedicated efforts of the Conservatoire d'espaces naturels d'Occitanie, in collaboration with the Conservatoire du littoral, the site's owner, the commune of Villeneuve-lès-Maguelone, Sète Agglopôle Méditerranée, and Montpellier Méditerranée Métropole. Together, they tirelessly work to safeguard and preserve this precious wetland ecosystem, allowing the public the unique opportunity to explore and appreciate its natural wonders.
