Discover Uriel Orlow multipart installation Up, Up, Up at the 2023 Kochi-Muziris Biennale.
The work taps into biodiversity research in the Swiss alps and the Himalayas which reveals the climb of mountain flora due to climate change. By connecting two high altitude locations from the so-called Global North and South respectively, the work translocally addresses urgencies around climate change from the point of view of remote, mostly unseen sites. Up, Up, Up is mindful of what environmental humanities scholar Rob Nixon refers to as ‘slow violence’, that is a violence of delayed effects and geographical discrepancies of cause and effect and is looking at quiet but persistent effects of climate change that escape the spectacle-driven media representation of climate change as well as our own diminished attention spans.
The 2023 Kochi-Muziris Biennale curated by Shubigi Rao is open until April 10th, 2023. Don’t miss it!
