AN INVITATION TO DISAPPEAR
by Julian Charrière
In Julian Charrière`s installation "An invitation to disappear", step for step, the visitors approach a rave. They follow the rhythms and sounds of electronic music, becoming ever more submerged in a setting veiled by wafting mist until they reach the heart of the exhibition: a film shot in a palm-oil plantation in the Far East. It is a film that persuasively presents the excessive, exploitative decimation of nature to visitors who are intoxicated by music.
