“the nuclear mundane”

potassium iodine painting, collage
2022

Inspired by Jessica Hurley's book, Infrastructures of Apocalypse: "when we speak of the nuclear as an always-absent referent, as that which we cannot think, we limit our object of study to the bomb itself, and then only to its imagined futures: the mushroom clouds that we imagine blooming across the continents and destroying life on this planet...The nuclear mundane approaches the nuclear age with an eye for its material realities, focusing on the environmental, infrastructural, bodily, and social impacts of nuclear technologies and the politics that prioritize them."

Exhibited in the Concordia MFA show Maureen VII
