Stasis and climate cataclysm explored at RMIT’s After Fukushima exhibition, SMH May 19, 2015 Robert Nelson

​RMIT Gallery
Until May 30

Rosemary Laing
MoMA at Heide
Until May 31 “….Called Crystal Palace: The Great Exhibition of the Works of Industry of all Nuclear Nations, the works relate our age to the celebration of aesthetic manufacturing in the 19th century.

These chilling pieces hang within Japanese Art After Fukushima, an exhibition of artistic reactions to the melt-down of the Fukushima Daiichi plant in 2011.  It contains marvellous work, such as Yutaka Kobayashi’s Absorption Ripples – Melt down, melt away, which uses a motif of the traditional Japanese garden, suggesting that radiation remains for millennia but the consciousness of it is transient.

The Fukushima disaster has inspired memorable actions, such as the Finger Pointing Worker, where a man menacingly accuses the Fukuichi​ live camera by pointing his finger at it. The unknown performer in the viral video is disguised in a radiation protection suit, but it might be Kota Takeuchi​, who worked at Fukushima and included the video in an exhibition at in Tokyo.

Despite invoking Godzilla – the mutant monster of destruction awoken after Hiroshima and Nagasaki – the exhibition is collected and thoughtful, including quiet works such as Manabu Ikeda’s rococo drawing of an industrial cooling tower.

Japanese Art After Fukushima is part of an excellent festival, Art + Climate = Change, which gathers local and international artists working with environmental ideas. It has spanned numerous venues across the state and is an important initiative of Guy Abrahams from the non-profit-making Climarte​.

We’re holding an open mic night on the 29th May to raise awareness and funds for the campaign against the radioactive commission and in general, the nuclear industries continued attacks on aboriginal communities. (radioactive waste dumps and uranium mines in Australia are always proposed to be on aboriginal land, adding motive for community closures).

We have never asked for donations to Antinuclear, and we’re not doing so now.

However, we’re just very keen to support Frontline Films  David Bradbury is an Australian film-maker who has earned an international reputation as a film maker willing to go to extraordinary lengths for a cause, exposing political oppression and environmental vandalism.

Bradbury has won many international film festival prizes, received five Australian Film Industry awards, and two Academy Award nominations.

He is currently producing a very up to date film on the situation of nuclear power – globally. Bradbury’s Frontline Films nevertheless runs on the proverbiial shoe string – and with little encouragement from the mainstream media.

We believe that Frontline Film’s newest documentary will be a remarkable and eye-opening film. But David Bradbury needs funds to get these filmed events and interviews edited, and onto DVD and film. And then – to get this – the most up to date film about the global nuclear scene to the  2nd International Uranium Film Festival of Rio de Janeiro 28. June – 14. July 2012.

So – we’re calling for  donations. The Frontline Film Foundation  is a registered charity and has tax deductible status. All you need is these  banking details:
Frontline Film Foundation
Southern Cross Credit Union
BSB: 802-185
A/C #: 86527

  5. Thanks for spotting the protests on this web space.
    We attended a march/rally listed here…
    handed out various media to alert The Public
    about the scam to make things seem so dire
    while often giving the only “out” as more

    “People who are unable to stand for anything…
    will fall for anything.”
