School Bus, Choinski, Belarus (2008), de Alice Miceli.

Alice Miceli presents her work, Chernobyl Project, in Americas Society, opening October 9th 2019. The exhibition, curated by Gabriela Rangel and Diana Flatto, includes a series of 30 radiographs, produced in 2006-2010, that document the enduring effects of the Soviet nuclear plant explosion of 1986. Through unconventional methods, Miceli was able to make the gamma radiation visible to the human eye through photography. Both technically and conceptually complex, Miceli’s work questions our ideas of vision, memory, politics, and environmental issues.
