LA PRAIRIE x MASI LUGANO: “Towards No Earthly Pole”

Recently, I visited the preview of the first solo exhibiton of Julian Charrière at MASI Lugano. Some of my vast Insta impressions can be found below. Stay tuned for an interview with the artist and more inspiring moments and captions. The show runs until 15th March 2020.

@laprairie x @masilugano🔥⛲at the preview of the first solo exhibition of @julian.charriere at #MASILugano. Thanks #LaPrairie & #MASILugano for a great evening! Through the exhibition "Towards No Earthly Pole" MASI wishes to pay tribute to Julian Charrière, one of the most innovative and promising young Swiss artists of his generation. The exhibition has been developed around a new videowork of the same name, a film started in 2017 and for which the artist explored remote places subject to extremely hostile weather, including the Antarctic, the Rodano and Aletsch glaciers in Switzerland, Mont Blanc, Iceland and Greenland. Touching upon the history of science, the development of media culture, the romance of exploration as well as the contemporary ecological crisis, in this exhibition Charrière turns his attention to links between colonial and environmental histories, while offering wider reflections upon the pathos of the contemporary geographical imaginary. The exhibition will subsequently be presented in a modified version at the @aargauerkunsthaus and at the @dallasmuseumart.
