Julian Charrière – An Invitation To Disappear
Conceptual artist Julian Charrière bridges the realms of environmental science and cultural history. His projects often stem from fieldwork in remote locations with acute geophysical identities. Charrière’s new work traces the historical and geographical path between Mount Tambora in Indonesia, which erupted in 1815, and the Alps. It follows the entangled threads of climate devastation, monocultural farming, and an imaginary in which apocalyptic ecological threats find poetic utterance in the aesthetic of the sublime. The book documenting the work is published with the dystopic installations of the work at Kunsthalle Mainz, on Mauvoisin Dam, and at Musée de Bagnes.
