In the summer of 2017 Aimee Lax took part in a residency at Cove Park, Scotland, overlooking Loch Long. She was immediately struck by the soil, peaty rich-brown and shimmering with metallic-looking healthy bacteria. The fungus and lichen bright green and orange, as a result of the clean air. But literally lurking around the corner, buried deep in the hill side, reside our nation’s warheads. …
This led her to follow a fictional line of enquiry, a ‘what if?’ scenario. What if any of the radiation should leak, what kind of organisms might result after decades of undetected toxic seepage? Some results of the fictional field study can be seen here. Lax will also be hosting a Ceramic Masterclass April 13/14th, to produce scifi porcelain organisms, booking essential, please contact New Brewery Arts
