Stanislava Pinchuk [Miso] 2016 Fall Out
Reflecting on her time spent in Fukushima, Fall Out offers large-scale works in Pinchuk’s signature style; a sensitive approach in revealing the devastating nuclear fallout. The consideration and care demonstrated in the paper works illustrates a sincerity in the artist’s approach, and in contrast, her photographs act as a raw representation of physical loss and memorial.
I keep thinking about when we first got out of the car in Fukushima, and right at my feet were those fish nets drying on the ground, tracing the topography of the dead earth. That’s exactly what the whole nuclear evacuation zone felt like.
This huge operation, putting an entire landscape into bags, like you can contain something like that. But it was just fallout, falling out through the holes.
