Back home for his new exhibition Towards No Earthly Pole, showing at the Museo d’arte della Svizzera italiana (MASI Lugano) in Switzerland, Julian Charrière is presenting a series of art works bearing witness to extreme environments. MASI is the first museum to present the artist’s latest video project (which gives its name to the exhibition), which began in 2017, tracing his exploration of the most hostile, remote and icy climates and terrains on the planet. Cosmology and cosmogony convene to form new imaginaries, at a time when, due to global warming, these ‘extreme’ places on the planet are subject to significant variations.
