Io Sivertsen, LET’S TALK ABOUT THE WEATHER (2019-2021)

3. June @ 10:00 - 13. June @ 20:00

Let’s Talk About the Weather simultaneously addresses our relationship with weather as well as Sivertsen’s own relationship to her father. This personal story and dilemma—an inter-generational difference of opinion with a parent—meets the realities and complexities of the global climate crisis heads-on.

My father doesn’t believe climate change is caused by rising human emissions. But I do. This work encompasses my relationship with him, while simultaneously describing my relationship to our climate. It is a satirical approach to a very serious issue, blurring the lines of personal experiences and facts. Because it is very difficult to believe something that is not visible yet, this is an intuitive exploration on how climate change manifests itself.

With this project, Sivertsen underlines how difficult it is to believe in something that is not yet visible. We need mediators, such as weather reporters, who talk about the future; a place, a time and a sensation or scenario that does not exist yet, or cannot be imagined. At the same time, weather reporters also act as mediators of climate change.

Presenting this intuitive exploration on how climate change manifests itself, Let’s Talk About the Weather consists of a multimedia presentation with a video, video stills, photographs, and a publication.

The Camera House presenting Let’s Talk About the Weather by Io Sivertsen has been designed and built by: Emma Louise Rasmussen, Christine Dellgren Geneser, Fie Filippa Koll Svensen , Mariela Andrea Bergum-Conteh and Marie Jul Scharff, Bachelor students from the Institute of Architecture and Design, Royal Danish Academy, under the supervision of Architect and Teacher Kristian Hansen, from Marstal Søfartsmuseum. Head of the Bachelor program is Architect, Associate Professor Jacob Sebastian Bang.

Io Sivertsen’s project and participation is supported by The Royal Norwegian Embassy in Copenhagen and her video work ‘Let’s Talk About the Weather’ is being supported by Canon Denmark.

We wish to thank our key partner Institute for Architecture and Design, The Royal Danish Academy for co-creation of the architectural framework of the exhibition. 

The festival centre and CPF has generously been supported by Københavns Kommune, Det Obelske Familiefond and Aage og Johanne Louis-Hansens Fond.
