Hanna Husberg: Think global, act local – Systémique
CEAAC (Centre Européen d’Actions Artistiques Contemporaines) Strasbourg
13 march – 24 may 2015
The exhibition Systémique, the first of the cycle Think global, act local, is based on a set of visual and conceptual connections that evoke the complexity and interdependence of our systems. Our entry into the era of the Anthropocene, an era in which humanity, as explained by the chemist Paul Crutzen, has became the primary geological force, involves phenomena beyond our temporal and spatial perception. It is characterized by systems thinking, a way of reading the world that focuses on the links between things rather than the objects themselves. The financial system (systemic crisis and not the real economy) reminded us to which extent the Anthropocene is a succession of abstractions, but operational abstractions. All that makes systems (immunology, ecology, society) raises problems of representation, perception, form, which the artists capture to reveal our world in all its complexity. They manage to reveal its poetry, giving a sensory experience of this new way of thinking about the world.
