1 Moving Toward a Balanced Earth Kick the Carbon Habit Exhibition Proposal Art for the Environment Initiative Te Papa Tongarewa Museum, Wellington, New Zealand World City Expo,2009, Incheon, Korea Bogata, Colombia
2 ART FOR THE ENVIRONMENT INITIATIVE Our traveling curatorial program model is designed to highlight regional environmental issues through art to educate and motivate the public in taking personal action in local and global conservation efforts. Under this initiative, the Natural World Museum (NWM) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) produce a major launch exhibit for each annual World Environment Day (WED) event. WED is one of the principal vehicles through which the United Nations stimulates awareness of the environment and enhances political attention and action, commemorated each year on June 5, for the past 30 years a different country hosts this international celebration. From the host city, the exhibit travels to other partnering museums around the world to yield continuous opportunities for communities on local, national, and international levels. In addition to our annual traveling exhibits, NWM makes these exhibitions available to the greater public through virtual exhibits online and through exhibition catalogues distributed world-wide. In order to engage the public, we design our exhibits for broad and diverse audiences by featuring an interesting and evocative mix of painting, sculpture, photography, multimedia and conceptual installations. The exhibits function as a cross cultural and interdisciplinary interface between humans and nature, the storyline behind the artwork brings the environmental message alive. Through WED programs, we demonstrate the intricacy of nature through culturally relevant contexts, and empower citizens from around the world to generate new avenues of environmental stewardship. A primary goal for the NWM is to make its programs affordable and accessible to all members of the community, equipping people with resources on how to become a part of the environmental solution. Programs include international symposia, opening reception events with artist awards ceremonies, eco fashion shows, environmental films, musical performances, and educational outreach activities. Each year the annual environmental topic of World Environment Day serves as the base theme for our exhibits and programs.
3 Moving Toward a Balanced Earth For the 2008 WED, UNEP continues to explore and address the theme of climate change, with an emphasis on moving toward a low carbon economy with their motto, Kick the Carbon Habit. Nature strives for balance, including balancing the levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. But the rate at which humans are moving carbon into the atmosphere by burning fossil fuels has surpassed Earth s ability to maintain balance. As a result, the climate is changing. Carbon balance is one part of nature s balancing act. Humans, collectively and individually, also strive for balance. In this exhibition, we ask the artists to help us find new visions and new choices for a balanced Earth. What does it mean to be in balance as individuals and communities? How do we get the Earth in balance? What does balance look and feel like? The answers are as varied as the artists. Their stories reflect both the consequences of our current path as well as the opportunities for new ones. One artist calls this dilemma of balance existential slapstick while another calls breath and clean air the necessary first step for balancing ourselves and the planet. Some artists explore new energy sources for the future, while still others remind us to trust Mother Earth and the shared energy and wisdom that has always been here if we take the time to look, listen and receive. Collectively, the artists ask us to consider the connection between Earth s imbalance and ours. Can we use nature as a model and mentor to find equilibrium? Nature reacts by adapting or going extinct. How will we react? Curator: Randy Jayne Rosenberg

7 Lars Siltberg, Sweden Man with Balls on Hands and Feet, Looped video trilogy A fit man tries out the obstacles of gravity on three types of floors: ice, water and an airstream. Attached at the end of each body limb are balls, worn as if they are actual body parts. The video portrays a symbolic test of balance in all spheres of our lives. The tension of us staying upright in life is crucial social, economic, environmental, and physical control to stay upright is central to us. The existential slapstick of the video shows this complex challenge of keeping our earth in balance in a simplistic way.
8 Lise Bjorne Norway Breath Series, Rayographs Inspired by Man Ray s rayographs, the Breath Series are created in the darkroom without using a camera. The artist breaths, screams and yells onto a light sensitive paper. This procedure captures the trace of the artist s out-breath along with movement of her body s action: her knees, hands and mouth have left empty dark areas on the image. The action of enlarging one s breath is a metaphor for the connection of all mankind. Our breath is the first step toward moving into balance inside and out.
9 Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba, Vietnam Breathing is Free: 12,756.3, 2008 Photography and video installation "Breathing is Free: 12,756.3" is the most recent episode of the "Memorial Project" series and portrays the artist as he attempts to run the distance of 12,756.3 km (the diameter of the earth), the shortest distance to the other side of the planet. The work is an ongoing project that has been created in 10 different cities in Asia and Europe. The artist s travels are tracked via GPS. Such data of the run are transferred onto aerial photographs of cities. The paths become the lines to make a large drawing over the infrastructure of the land. The artist addresses our environment and pollution from the most fundamental level--we must be able to breathe to exist.
10 Ocean Earth, USA Water-Cycle Self-Reliance, 2008 Photo-documentation, rig, video Seeking a synthesis of art and science Peter Fend founded the Ocean Earth Construction and Development Corporation in He assembled artists, architects, and scientists with the aim to research alternative energy sources. Bladder kelp, which is found throughout the temperate and polar Southern Hemisphere, and in the Northeast Pacific, is the fastest growing plant on earth. It can grow 30 cm a day. At 71%, kelp also has the highest conversion rate of plant weight to methane gas. In the spirit of earth art, Ocean Earth demonstrates though photography, video and storyboard documentation, how efficiently one can convert a natural strand of algae, also present throughout New Zealand, into methane gas. Ocean Earth foresees algae as a viable energy source for the future.
11 Ken Aptekar, USA The answer is blowing in the wind, 2008 four panels, oil on wood, sandblasted glass, bolts After: Eugene Verboeckhoven ( ), A Panoramic Summer Landscape with Cattle Grazing in a Meadow, 1864 The artist recycles old paintings. He paints on wood panels, then bolts glass sandblasted with text over the panels. Using the history of art as his playground, he appropriates paintings from the past, and connects them to the present. His work carries the implication that these old paintings mean something when the audience begins to talk back to them. In this painting, the artist uses a littleknown 19th c. Dutch painting of a windmill in an idyllic landscape. The title of the artwork is borrowed from a Bob Dylan song that became the anthem of earlier movements to raise awareness. The simplest, most natural solutions to problems--such as renewable energy-- can be beautiful.
12 Superflex, Denmark Untitled, 2008 Biogas ball, photographic documentation The Danish collective of artists, Jakob Fenger, Rasmus Nielsen and Bjornstjerne Christiansen, under the name of Superflex, have been working together since In 1996, Superflex began developing applications for their two-chamber biogas unit, a $250 sustainable system that continually produces clean energy. The artists state, "The intension has been to construct a simple biogas unit that would produce sufficient gas for the cooking and lighting needs of a single family. The main focus is to make a system that would meet the efficiency, economic resources and style demands of a modern African consumer. This means for a modest sum, an African family will be able to buy a biogas system and achieve self-sufficiency in energy."
13 Ken Rinaldo & Amy Youngs, USA Farm Fountain, 2008 Multi-media Installation with aquaculture, plants, fish and water This living sculpture is designed to inspire participation in lowering greenhouse gas emissions through personal and local food production. It is a functional garden, fish farm, chandelier and fountain ecosystem. Much of produce purchased in the US travels an average of 1,500 miles from the farm to fork. The artists are presenting a home-sized, personal hydroponics system that could become a year-round alternative to purchasing vegetables that have been grown on distant, petroleum-powered farms and trucked to grocery stores. In lessening the impact, they have created am aesthetically-pleasing system that could reduce our impact on greenhouse gas emissions, while at the same time inspire others to build their own home versions. The plants growing include a variety of lettuces, cilantro, mint, basil, tomatoes, chives, parsley, mizuna, watercress and tatsoi. The fish in this work are Tilapia, a type of fish that has been farmed for thousands of years in the Nile delta.
14 Chris Drury UK Spore Waves, 2008 Video installation We live out of balance with the Earth. The circle of renewal has been broken. The mushroom, for its healing properties is the great recycler of nature breaking down dead matter back into the soil. Coupled with its circular mandala-like shape, the mushroom is a perfect reflection and reminder that without renewal our soils will not support the biodiversity of life, and will lead to our own demise.
15 Lien Botha, South Africa Amendment, 2006 Series of 14 triptych color photographic ink-jet prints Letters to Linnaeus 1 & 2, 2008 Two triptych color photographic ink-jet prints Amendment is a visual poem with 14 parts. Letters to Linnaeus 1 & 2 were created specifically for this exhibition and are an addendum to Amendment. Amendment is the artist s reflection and meditation on the environment in peril. This everchanging process includes the acts of correction, addition, deletion and amendment to what we know and see. The journey seems to express the writer, T.S. Elliot s sentiment that We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time..
16 Isa Genzken Germany XXL, 2007 Plastic foil, punched eyelets, screen-printing and collage XXL is part of the larger art installation titled Oil, which was first viewed at the Venice Biennial in XXL is an expression of the times in which we live and reduces the complexity of our global consumption to a meaningful image used in slogans. This image has come to symbolize the crisis of the future, as well as an expression of freedom.
17 Mounir Fatmi, Morocco Skyline, 2007 Assemblage Using VHS cassettes, Fatmi builds an exterior façade of a cityscape while symbolically portraying an interior sense of vulnerability and exposure through the no longer housed, and unraveled videotape. He equates the work to an article of clothing that no longer offers protection. The city skyline, often a symbol of economic triumph is not impervious to the collective behaviors of human beings and forces of nature.
18 Alison Clouston, New Zealand Diamond Python, 2007 Copperhead, 2007 Ink, watercolor, calfskin Clouston symbolically re-colonizes disappearing indigenous creatures back into the pastoral landscapes by drawing into cow s hide. As if to find shelter there, the drawing, bleeding into the leather like a tattoo, becomes permanent and not destined for extinction. The drawing of bones, creating a new architecture, is an elegy for what we have lost and what we are about to lose. It is a warning of resource depletion, the archeology of culture collapse. The snakes shed and renew their skins, so that they can begin afresh. Their coiled repose suggests the cyclical nature of the world.
19 Geoff Dixon, New Zealand Large Takahe Diptych with Sparrow/Found, 2008 oil and enamel on canvas While the paintings appear as large bird portraits they are intended as a metaphor for our own survival. Protected for thousands of years by geographical isolation, endemic New Zealand birdlife are easy indicators of climatic change and the health of the planet. The irony is that although wide spread, the common sparrow is seeing a decline in population in some countries.
20 Enrique Martinez Celaya Cuba TBD, 2008 Oil and wax on canvas
21 Alexis Rockman, USA Disneyworld Oil on wood The artist considers global warming to be one of the most important issues of our time. His paintings force us to confront a vision of the future implicit in the choices we make as a contemporary society
22 Ilya & Emilia Kabakov, Russia Palace of Projects, 2003 Digital Print The Palace of Projects is the Kabakovs' utopian archive of ideas and stories told by fictional Soviet citizens. These "65 projects or visionary plans include models, paintings and writings that propose remedies and suggestions for the challenges of daily life, improving our environment and personal growth. The projects encapsulate ordinary people's dreams, neurosis, ideals, problems, and obsessions and provide visitors with intimate glimpses into private moments that have universal resonance.
23 Ik-Joong Kang, Korea Mountain Wind, 2008 Mixed media on wood Mosaic-like and often colossal, Kang s installations explore community, culture, and human interrelation through the complementary lenses of intimate personal experience and global unity. The iconic and massive moon jar, named so for its ample, full-moon shape, is unique to Joseon Dynasty ( ) Korea. Made of austere white porcelain, devoid of ornament, and celebrated for its unique natural contours, the moon jar reflects Korea's Neo-Confucian virtues of purity, clarity, and humility, and self-expression. "Its rounded figure exudes the feeling of cosmic compassion necessary for a balanced earth. "
24 AES & F GROUP Russia Last Riot Tondo #3, 2005 Last Riot Tondo #5, 2007 Digital Print on Canvas Courtesy artists, MAC (Moscow) and Triumph Gallery (Moscow). Since 1995, the Russian artists, Tatiana Arzamasova, Lev Evzovich, Evgeny Svyatsky and Vladimir Fridkes have been working together to form the artist collective AES+F GROUP. Their conceptual artwork incorporates photography and computer-based art and video. Inspired by actual events publicized in the media, AES+F s artworks portray people in startling relationships with their environment. They create virtual worlds that transform, expand and mutate. Here, the inhabitants are genderless and becoming more like angels with only one identity--that of participants in the last riot. In this world all boundaries are lost.
25 Harriet Russell, UKEndangered Species, 2008 Printed illustrations Endangered Species was a special commission created for the Canadian Centre for Architecture in conjunction with their exhibition catalog, 1973: Sorry Out of Gas. In this children s book, with her distinctive drawings and hand-lettered text, Ms. Russell uses humor to describe the role of oil in daily life, and to suggest alternatives to this rapidly diminishing resource..,
26 Soledad Salame, Chile 20 NOTES, 2008 Mylar drawings embedded in resin These individual artworks utilize drawings from a personal archive that the artist developed between 1997 and 2002, of insects, and their disappearing environments. In creating these notes, the artist revisits and reinvents the drawings, to engage us in a dialogue about the beauty and importance of our earth. Each note relays a different thought relating to man s impact on the natural world. The use of resin for the notes stems from a desire to encapsulate time and preserve a record of today s terrestrial life.
27 Susan Norrie and David Mackenzie in collaboration with Justin Hale, Australia Havoc, Video Installation Camera, editing and location sound: David Mackenzie Journalist and translator: Justin Hale Driver and guide: Wowok ( hadi ernowo ) Sound mixing : Robert Hindley Norrie s work portrays the world in a state of both beauty and terror. We shudder in response to the natural and unnatural events that verge on the catastrophic. The viewer is immersed in images of ominous tempests, delicate spring blossoms, bubbling mud pools, swirling clouds of dust, and scientific experiments and ultimately cannot make sense of these phenomena. The range and scale of images has a vertiginous and unsettling effect that pulls at the viewer's unconscious. The voices of a man and woman chant their prayers from the Koran for this world. This project is dedicated to the people of Porong and East Java, especially the Korban Lumpur (the victims of the mud) those who have lost their lives, and to the many survivors who have lost their homes and land.
28 Walangari Karntawarra, Australia Water Dreaming, 1995 Snake Dreaming, 2000 Acrylic on canvas Australian Aborigines believe that Spiritual Ancestors come together to discuss problems, solutions and how people should live in the Dreamtime. It is from these foundations that the Aboriginal people have been able to cope, and maintain the traditional values of sharing, caring and respect for the environment. The Water Dreaming and Snake Dreaming are two of the most powerful Dreaming Stories.
29 Antonio Briceno Venezuela Gods of the Americas; A Natural Panteon Muu Demar, the Sea-Grandmother, 2005 Mma, Mother Earth, 2005 Tzipushawe, the Wisest One, 2001 Paba, Father God, 2005 Botoque, Thief of the Fire, 2006 Bepkororotí, Owner of Storms, 2006 Buoka, 2003 Photography For many indigenous cultures, the shamans are the reservoir and keeper of wisdom. They are the link between humans and the gods, devils, wild spirits and forces of the Nature. The Shamans can guide their people to a more balanced existence. The aboriginal communities photographed by the artist are from South and Central America. They hold a deep respect for Mother Earth. Each hill, lake, river, desert, valley and stone plays a role in the creation of their Cosmos. Since these cultures consider themselves a part of Nature, there is little abuse or excess in the way that they live--in balance.
30 Susan Plum, Mexico Corazon del Cielo (heart of the heavens), 2007 Corazon de la Tierra (heart of the earth), 2007 Glass lamp work on painted board relief. In the Mesoamerican cosmology, the universe is made up of filaments or cords. The job of the day-keepers (observers of the ancient 260 day Mesoamerican calendar/ ritual specialists) or shamans, is to unravel these sometimes tangled cords both through other dimensions in space and time, as well as in peoples personal lives. The intent is to bring harmony both to the cosmos, humanity and the world. This ancient philosophy resonates with the contemporary superstring theory where the fabric of space tears and repairs itself. Through these works, the artist is weaving glass threads to promote healing. The drawing and color on the boards create a blueprint for the cooling and balancing of an overheated earth.
31 Gabriela Morawetz, Poland Waterfinder Abecedaire, 2008 Etched granite slabs and iron rod Fata Morgana 1,3 & Terre 1, 2005 Photographic transfer on canvas The shoes symbolically represent human beings during their lonely journey, which is actually life itself. In these images, nothing else is left on the earth only infinite walking in some choreography that eventually becomes a new pattern of movement, language and direction.
32 Shane Cotton, New Zealand Painting TBD Upper Hutt born with affiliations to the Nga Puhi and Ngati Hine of Taitokerau, Shane Cotton has emerged as a major presence in Contemporary New Zealand art. Cotton has consistently redefined his style producing conceptually dense paintings that interrogate the dual heritage of New Zealand s post-contact history.the visual evolution of his works belies consistent themes of transformation, permanence, duality and synthesis. The arrangement of formal elements in the artist s compositions, though oblique in some instances, is largely derived from the spatial/conceptual dynamics that exist within the architecture of the Maori meeting house.
33 Bill Viola, USA Chott el Djerid, (A Portrait in Light and Heat), 1979 Video projection (color, sound) 28 minutes Chott el Djerid is the name of a vast, dry salt lake in the Tunisian Sahara Desert, where mirages are most likely to form in the midday sun. Here the intense desert heat manipulates, bends, and distorts the light rays to such an extent that you actually see things that are not there. Trees and sand dunes float off the ground, the edges of mountains and buildings ripple and vibrate, color and form blend into one shimmering dance. The desert mirages are set against images of the bleak winter prairies of Illinois and Saskatchewan, Canada, some of them recorded in a snowstorm. The opposite climactic conditions induce a similar aura of uncertainty, disorientation, and an unfamiliarity that causes us to reevaluate our perceptions of reality and realize that we are looking at something out of the ordinary.
34 Cyprien Tokoudagba, Benin Lissa, God of Nature, 2008 Tohossou Alokpe; God of Water, God of the River, 2008 Acrylic on canvas The two gods, revered by West African culture, are creators, caretakers and protectors of the natural world. Lissa is the god who created the skies and the earth. She embodies the symbols of the sun and the moon. Tôhôssou, the god of water incarnates in human bodies. Represented as a feminine figure, she is bedecked in jewels reserved for royalty.
