Bigert & Bergström in group show Surfacing Earth at Röda Sten, Gothenburg

Surfacing Earth will address various ways in which man-made changes of the planet’s ecosystem have left physical marks on the Earth's surfaces—in landscapes, natural environments and biospheres—but also in our cognitive understanding of man’s physical relationship with nature. Looking at how modern societal transformations have manifested themselves in landscapes, the exhibition ultimately want to ask how we can continue to coexist with one another in these transformed landscapes? Is reinventing a relationship with nature, that reconnects us to nature on spiritual, philosophical and economical ways desirable? Can we think of a mode of transformed aesthetics that will enlighten us about the Anthropocene and make us take action? 
 
In the exhibition Bigert & Bergström shows their latest geo-engineering performance piece Rescue Blanket for Kebnekaise from 2015.
