Julian Charrière — We are all astronauts
We are all astronauts
Past: January 17 → February 23, 2014
Julian Charrière (born in 1987, based in Berlin), who earned a master’s degree in Olafur Eliasson’s class at Berlin’s Institut für Raumexperimente in 2013, takes planet Earth as the field of his inquiry. Whether collecting sand from UN-recognized countries and samples from the world’s longest rivers, or realizing performances in Ethiopia and Iceland, Charrière plays with geology, science and architecture.
At the Swiss Cultural Center for his first solo show in France, the artist has created a new configuration of We Are All Astronauts Aboard a Little Spaceship Called Earth (2013), an installation that is infused with a disturbing poetry that examines the terrestrial globe through its representation, fragility and life expectancy.
