Video Screening `Precarious´ plus Discussion with the Artist at the National Art School Sydney
This visually stunning road movie takes the spectator on a bleak journey from the shores of the Black Sea to the frozen heart of Chernobyl, passing through desolate, snowy landscapes, littered with abandoned villages. Squatting in this icy wasteland, the ghostly sarcophagus of Reactor Number 4 is a constant reminder of the threat still lurking below.

Merilyn Fairskye is an artist and NAS alumna who makes videos and photographs through her production company, Plus & Minus Productions.
