Five years after Fukushima:

Jusqu’ici tout va bien

installation / video loop; 4,30min; Fukushima, Japan & Vienna, Austria, 2013

The video shows a person running though the lost city Futaba filmed from a car following the runner who’s movements are in sync with the clicks of a Geiger counter. The video was part of an installation where two places were connected with each other: Vienna hosting the International Atomic Energy Agency and the Fukushima area. The connection is barely visible like the threat of nuclear radiation. In the interventional work these two different places are brought together in an investigative situation. One part of the installation was a picture of the flag of the abandoned city Futaba, situated next to the destroyed power plant, that was put up at Uno-city in front of the IAEO-building.
