Guided lunch tour of the exhibition The Weather War at Skissernas Museum!
Since the early 1990s, the artists Mats Bigert (b. 1965) and Lars Bergström (b. 1962) have been interested in extreme weather phenomena and climate-related issues. The weather and human impact on the climate, not least the desire to influence it, are recurring themes of their oeuvre. Their work often exists at the intersection of man, nature and science. The exhibition presents several installations that originate in what could be called geoengineering projects – attempts to artificially influence climate and weather. In these extensive art projects, the artists deal with the effects of global warming and study climate-related issues from a historical, scientific and social perspective. With a conceptual turn, they highlight the importance of artistic creativity as a means to explain complex relationships.
After 30 years of creative collaboration, their climate-related works are highly relevant today.
