In this talk, Artist-in-Residence Alice Miceli will discuss her research on landscapes inscribed with human-induced traumas and how former theatres of war raise issues of visibility, accessibility, and memory. Focusing on two of her major projects—Chernobyl Project (2007–2011), which revolves around the exclusion zone generated by the infamous nuclear disaster and In Depth (landmines) (2014–ongoing), a photographic inquiry into landscapes contaminated with unexplored landmines—Miceli will unravel the multiple methodologies, from archival research and investigative travels to formal experimentation, which frame the traces of trauma in the context of her practice.
The talk will take place in the artist’s studio.
