Bigert & Bergström have a longstanding fascination with humanity’s relationship to climate, nature, energy and technology. After gaining international prominence with their climate chamber designed for World Expo in Lisbon in 1998, they have worked across multiple artistic formats – from sculpture and film to performance.
In 2015, Bigert & Bergström covered the peak of Sweden’s highest mountain, Kebnekaise, with an insulating coat to examine whether geo-engineering could help to slow glacial melting. They are currently enjoying considerable exposure in China, where their solo show The Weather War is on show at Shanghai Minsheng Art Museum from March-April 2017. The exhibition explores human attempts to control the planet’s weather and temperature. SOLAR EGG shifts that focus to practical use.
