Shadows of the Survivors

BY RIKAKO NAGASHIMA
@ VOL 107 ON OCT 30, 2013

When the atomic bomb hit Hiroshima, people's shadows were permanently scorched in to their surroundings. Rikako Nagashima and her team contacted 23 survivors and took copies of their shadows. They then placed these shadows around Hiroshima as a memorial and to spread awareness of what happened. From Peace Shadow Project's website we can see where these survivors were, hear their stories, and leave them a personal message. (in Japanese with English subtitles)

BY ANNA VERHULST
@ VOL 24 ON DEC 09, 2014

Due to considerable progress in cancer treatment and survival rates, the population of cancer survivors can be anticipated to keep expanding in the foreseeable future.

Big Bang Memorial

BY GAËLLE LE GUILLOU
@ VOL 9 ON DEC 02, 2014

Pechakucha was the opportunity for Gaëlle Le Guillou to speak about her deep project: it is an artistic and experimental project at long term in the cemetery of Bouteillerie in Nantes.
This project is supported by the association BIG BANG MEMORIAL. The idea of this association is to take a fresh look at the intimate and common that are cemeteries.

Ceramist Sculptrice, she chooses this material because she can imagine forms and volumes .
She experiments with coloured enamels, textures, by renewing regularly her themes of inspirations.
She draws her inspiration from her childhood, from fashionably, architecture, arts, and nature.
She creates her universe, fanciful and in movement, even if it is about the death.
That is characteristic in her work, and her life. {in french}

York Station

BY MEG THOMAS
@ VOL 14 ON NOV 28, 2017

In "York Station" Meg Thomas explores the signs and interactions that are normally overlooked a journey through a station. She highlights the commercial takeover of the public space, and the way the passenger is de-prioritised in station design. The hyper-reality of the station space is twisted as the audience is invited to also follow a silent visual story. This undercurrent covers the personal emotions that are digested and processed as a background to everyday life.
