Kunsthal Charlottenborg Shows the Consequences of Globalization

COPENHAGEN.- Kunsthal Charlottenborg commences a collaborative effort with the French Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, Paris presenting an exhibition which adds images and sounds to the consequences of globalization and climate change.

Created by the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain, "Native Land, Stop Eject" explores the meaning of sedentariness and nomadism today, an epoch in which human migration flows are taking place on an unprecedented scale. The international COP15 conference on climate change organized by the United Nations which took place in Copenhagen from December 7-18, 2009 attests to this critical moment in history, where the environment conditions what humans do, what they will become, and where they will live.

Native Land, Stop Eject thus proposes a reflection on the notions of being rooted and uprooted, as well as related questions of identity in two works created especially for the exhibition. Filmmaker Raymond Depardon gives a voice to those who wish to remain on their land but are threatened with exile. Philosopher Paul Virilio, in collaboration with the artists architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Mark Hansen, and Laura Kurgan, examines and challenges new trends in contemporary human movement due to environmental, political, and economic factors.

HEAR THEM SPEAK, a film by Raymond Depardon with the sound engineer, Claudine Nougaret, is centered on nomads, farmers, islanders, and indigenous peoples, all of whom are either threatened with extinction or living on the periphery of globalization. Giving value to speaking and listening, he focuses on their mother tongue languages: Kawésqar, Mapuche, Afar, Quechua, Chipaya, Breton, Occitan, Yanomami, Guarani. Though still spoken today, all the languages heard in the film—a large-scale projection that assigns as much importance to sound as image—are endangered, symbolizing the imminent threat to their identity. “I was born in my language,” says one woman, as she voices her anger, pain, and fears.

EXIT an innovative installation by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, Mark Hansen, Laura Kurgan and Ben Rubin gives form to Paul Virilio’s concepts on human trajectories across the globe. In a circular and immersive projection, it presents 6 animated maps generated by a database of information provided by international organizations, with a focus upon the following subjects: Population Shifts: Cities. Remittances: Sending Money Home. Political Refugees and Forced Migration. Natural Catastrophes. Rising Seas, Sinking Cities. Speechless and Deforestation.

While you're waiting to come in and see EXIT, you can have a look in the room next door at the names of all the institutions and organizations that have provided the statistical material behind the dynamic maps. The person responsible for ensuring the validity of all the material used is François Gemenne, researcher and professor of migratory movements associated with climate change at the Sciences Po, Paris.

In a separate small video installation Paul Virilio contextualises EXIT. The video consists of an approximately 3-minute-long reading in which Virilio constantly moves forward towards the viewer while speaking of his nostalgia in thinking of the changes in "magnitude of the world about its scale” and contemplating the loss of geographic space these changes entail - an idea that has been central to his philosophical work for decades.

The idea for the exhibition Native Land, Stop Eject was conceived by Hervé Chandès, director and chief curator of Fondation Cartier. What remains, he asks, of the idea of native land and mother tongue at a time when over 200 million people live in a country other than the one they were born in? It was these kind of facts that aroused Chandès' curiosity, compelled him to explore the consequences and gave rise to the process and concept behind the exhibition.
