From April 12th to May 5th, 2013, Nuclear Café staged its inaugural exhibtion at The Foundry in Cohoes, NY, USA.
It was conceptualised as a traverse of public place—a harbor of fears—for the known and unknown, seen and unseen, and the acknowledged and denied. It was a reflection on our collective lives in our current political environment. This was the place our accountabilities intersected as we sit shoulder-to-shoulder, or tread across each others’ paths.
Themetically, it revolved around the Japanese tsunami and its after-effects, most notably as regards the nuclear disaster it engendered at the Fukushima Daiichi reactor plant.
The installation was bookended by two performances given on April the 12th and May 14th, 2013.
