4 May - 16 September 2012
Espace Fondation EDF, Paris
The CARBON 12 exhibition opens in Paris on 3 May at the Espace Foundation EDF. The exhibition encompasses biodiversity, atmospherics and oceanography — earth, wind and sea. Five artists who have worked with climate scientists exhibit their artworks alongside the scientific enquiry.
"What Carbon 12 makes clear is that although the arts and humanities have much to say in regard to climate change, this is by no means a direct translation of climate change science, nor is it the articulation of a warning in regard to human activity. Rather, this is a creative response that makes vivid a complex, often paradoxical, sensual and emotional engagement with the environment. And, this is precisely the terrain on which hearts and minds are won."
