Julian Charrière
Artist

Julian Charrière (b. 1987, Morges, Switzerland) is a French-Swiss artist based in Berlin whose work bridges the realms of environmental science and cultural history. Marshaling performance, sculpture and photography, his projects often stem from fieldwork in remote locations with acute geophysical identities – such as volcanoes, ice-fields and radioactive sites. To date, his works have explored post-romantic constructions of ‘nature’, and staged tensions between deep or geological timescales and those relating to mankind. Charrière’s approach further reflects upon the mythos of the quest and its objects in a globalized age.

Charriére has exhibited his work – both individually and as a part of the Berlin-based art collective Das Numen – in institutions worldwide, including at the Parasol Unit Foundation for Art in London; Musée des Beaux-Arts de Lausanne in Switzerland; Haus der Kulturen der Welt in Berlin; Kunsthalle Wien in Vienna; Thyssen Bornemizsa Art Contemporary in Vienna; Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin; The Reykjavik Art Museum in Iceland; the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo; and at the the 12th Biennale de Lyon in France. In 2012, Charrière collaborated with the artist Julius von Bismarck on the site-specific performance piece Some Pigeons Are More Equal Than Others for the 13th International Architecture Exhibition, Venice Biennale.

  • Mara Palena: Oikeiôsis

    The knowledge of one’s inner self as the sole tool for self-fulfillment, for stoically embracing the human condition in all its turmoils – that is what ancient Greeks used to call Oikeiôsis. The same word was chosen by Mara Palena to call a project that unfolds over the duration of existence. The analog images shot by the artist from her childhood to today do not follow any external precept. (more…)
