The Aargauer Kunsthaus presents Towards No Earthly Pole, a solo exhibition of the young western Swiss artist Julian Charrière (b. 1987 in Morges). The centrepiece of the show is Charrière’s titular new film, which he started working on in 2017. For this work the artist travelled to some of the most inhospitable areas of our planet like the Antarctic, Greenland and Iceland, as well as to extraordinary local topographies like the Rhône and Aletsch glaciers and Mont Blanc.

His filmic journey takes him into historical dimensions of the history of science like the development of cultural media or the romanticism of the urge to explore and discover, as well as into issues of today: climate change and its impact on the global ecosystem.

Complemented by individual pieces and groups of works in the fields of photography, installation art, object art and sculpture, the exhibition provides a comprehensive insight into the work of Julian Charrière.

The exhibition is organised in cooperation with MASI (Museo d'arte della Svizzera italiana), Lugano, where the film Towards No Earthly Pole has been on view from 27 October 2019 to 15 March 2020.
