When husband and wife art/design duo Jason and Sharon Gale (Quite British Accent) began working together, someone told them that sport had no place in art. Rather than take heed, the couple produce all their work using the visual vocabulary of sporting culture. Their latest collection, exhibited recently at Core at Nolias Gallery, includes a series of textile slogans appliquéd onto vintage football shirts. The work satirises the sport-in-art argument and likens popular culture heroes to sporting heroes.
After the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in April 1986, the Ukrainian government created the Exclusion Zone, an area of restricted access meant to contain the degenerative effects of the radioactive fallout from the blast and a way to keep curious eyes away from one of the worst nuclear power plant accidents in history. However, despite a natural population that still persists to this day, tourists can be granted day passes to explore the irradiated ruins of Chernobyl and neighboring city Pripyat. Hélène DemiPoulpe Veilleux’s photo journal documents her travel into the Zone, uncovering the remnants of lives left behind in the two ghost towns, which still stand to this day as twin sacrifices to the alter of scientific progress.
