A graduate of Berlin University of Arts and a former student of Olafur Eliasson at the Institut für Raumexperimente, Charrière’s work bridges the realms of environmental science and cultural history. His work, which often develops from research in remote locations with acute geophysical identities, explores post-romantic constructions of ‘nature’ and staged tensions between geological timescales and those relating to mankind. Charrière has been exhibited at prestigious institutions worldwide, including the Parasol Unit Foundation for Art, London; Musée des Beaux-Arts de Lausanne, Lausanne; Centre Culturel Suisse, Paris; Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Berlin; Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna; Thyssen Bornemizsa Art Contemporary, Vienna; Neue Nationalgalerie, Berlin; The Reykjavik Art Museum, Reykjavik; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; The Kochi-Muziris Biennale, India; and at the the 12th Biennale de Lyon in France. In 2012, Charrière collaborated with Julius von Bismarck on the site-specific performance piece ‘Some Pigeons Are More Equal Than Others’ for the 13th International Architecture Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia.
