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 work here 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.

This publication documents the dystopic installations of the work at Kunsthalle Mainz, on Mauvoisin Dam, and at Musée de Bagnes.
