Temporary exhibition : "Aulps départ ! Plonk & Replonk at the Aulps Abbey"

Location : Domaine de Découverte de la Vallée d'Aulps


  • Affiche expo 2017
New for 2017, Aulps Abbey's visiting exhibition is the work of the famous Swiss comic writers Plonk et Replonk.
The result is a mix of farce, funny drawings and tall tales...After their stint in Paris - at the Musée d'Orsay no less - we decided to give Plonk et Replonk free rein to recreate the hitherto unknown (and frankly improbable) history of the abbey: the results are wonderful, if bizarre, from the astonishing relics of Godechaud de Pautage to the Vita of Saint Hilarion of the Apnea, and not forgetting the decidedly peculiar hobbies of Abbot Jean-Michel Mouloud...The icing on the cake is their discovery of an unusual monastic practice at Aulps Abbey: sack racing. After our exhibitions "Back to the Future", "Ribaud, Culvert, Boterel and other insults from the Middle Ages", here at the abbey, we're continuing our quest in search a lesser-known Middle Ages that's by turns funny, unselfconscious and full of interesting information.
