About

Julian Charrière’s conceptual works and activities have taken him, during the first decade of his career, to some of the remotest regions of the planet. Researching geology, biology, physics, history and archaeology, much of his work is concerned with time--the continuous cycle of past, present and future--as well as sudden or gradual physical transformations that have occurred naturally or due to human interventions. Creating works while exploring ecological and environmental issues in specific locations, Charrière examines how humanity interrelates with the natural order. A significant part of his oeuvre to date has led him to scrutinize the actual and dominant demands for technological advances, most of which depend on further depleting the Earth’s natural resources and have vast implications for the future of our ecological systems.
