Julian Charrière (born in 1987, based in Berlin), a graduate of the master class of Olafur Eliasson at the Institut für Raumexperimente Berlin in 2013, takes the planet earth as a field of investigation. He collected sand and stones from all states recognized by the UN or samples from the longest rivers in the world, he did solitary performances in Ethiopia and in Iceland, playing with geology, science and architecture. For his first institutional solo exhibition at the Centre Culturel Suisse, he creates a new configuration of We Are All Astronauts Aboard a Little Spaceship Called Earth (2013), an installation of disturbing poetry that examines the globe through its representation, its fragility and its lifetime.
