“To See Climate (Change)” is an artistic research project initiated at the beginning of 2020 by Romuald Krężel and René Alejandro Huari Mateus in Akademie Schloss Solitude in Stuttgart. Being focused on questions of sustainability and environmental destruction they have been searching for different performative and choreographic strategies that could allow us to see unseeable – climate and its changes.

Inspired by the theory of hyperobjects proposed by philosopher Timothy Morton, they worked with one specific object – a mobile greenhouse inhabited by 25 potted house- plants and two performers, taking care of them. A greenhouse – usually associated with protection, growing and preservation, is at the same time the visual symbol of global warming (greenhouse effect), controlled nature and regulated climate. Looking for the possible exchanges between humans and non-humans Romuald and Rene created a peculiar landscape of images, encounters, and atmospheres, inviting the audience to have a look at it.

In Warsaw Biennale artists will present a part of their work-in-progress performance, inviting the audience to the open discussion after.
