Video Interview For the 2008 Exhibition Human/Nature: Artists Respond to a Changing Planet
How do we mourn nature? Dario Robleto’s artwork for the 2008 exhibition "Human/Nature: Artists Respond to a Changing Planet" at the Museum of Contemporary Art, San Diego centers around a series of sculptures that focus on the inevitable loss of the glaciers, the mourning we collectively experience as we witness the changing of the earth at our own hands, and the ways in which loss can inspire new ways of thinking. The sculptures dialogue with one another to tell a larger story and relate to the artist's past work exploring the cultural histories of mourning and faith.
During his visits to Waterton Glacier International Peace Park, Dario Robleto interviewed many scientists, among them a leading glaciologist who is monitoring the park’s glaciers and participated in a glacier measuring expedition.
