Artist-in-Residence Alice Miceli will discuss during her talk her long-term research into both social and natural landscapes that have been inflicted by human-induced trauma. Her interests have culminated in the Chernobyl Project (2007-2011) where she documented the exclusion zone around the Chernobyl’s nuclear disaster, an environment that has been deeply affected by invisible radiation. Miceli’s most recent research project titled In Depth (landmines) (2014-ongoing) focuses on photographic representation of landscapes contaminated with unexplored landmines and on the physical position of the photographer’s body within these fields. Within the Artistic Research component of The Making of an Institution, furthers our understanding into Miceli’s research and artistic process that encompasses formal experimentation, archival research, and investigative travels.
This talk is part of the public programme of The Making of an Institution.
