Places like Chernobyl, Talvivaara and Fukushima have become concepts synonymous with accidents and ecological destruction. Human activities, such as industrial environmental disasters, are often extensive and long-lasting, penetrating through entire ecosystems with effects that may pass through several generations. In the piece, Rönkkö utilises a gesture familiar from political demonstrations; in each video, she is seen holding a cardboard sign with a short written message.
The work consists of 27 parts and each part is accompanied by a text. Experience the work.
