Bigert & Bergström’s exhibition Everybody Talks About The Weather, but Nobody Does Anything About It spans over a broad field dealing with the technology and “mythology” of weather and climate research. One can view the artists’ work as a research and exploration expedition as well as a mimetic mannerism of sorts. Not satisfied with merely finding out what goes on in the world of research, they undertake empirical experiments of their own, as meta-actions resembling and mimicking those carried out in the service of scientific research.*
