The Weather War at Shanghai Minsheng Art Museum

The Weather War is a documentary/art film created by Bigert & Bergström in 2012, depicting B&B’s travel in the American most tornado affected states with their imaginary machine/sculpture, trying to divert a tornado. Taking the vantage point from the film, the exhibition shows several of the artistic duo’s most recent climate-related artworks. Focusing on man’s attempts of atmospheric control through various geo-engineering techniques, the exhibition walks the audience through three different thematic zones: The Storm, The Drought and The Freeze. Finally, the exhibition invites the audience to enter the history of the weather through a new installation entitled ”Inside the Weather—a Synoptic Battlefield.” Total of 30 artworks will use 1500 square meters museum space in two floors.
