DangerInEvolution: Reload

I first wrote about DangerInEvolution, an installation by Kicca Igaly and Nessuno Myoo, back on February 17 during its stay at LEA27. Now, Chinon Beaumont, director of the Inspiritum Gallery, has offered the artists a chance to restage it, and they've done so with some modifications that amplify and clarify their message. We're provided with two additional spaces, one of which presents a sometimes gruesome video on the horrific aftermath of the 1986 meltdown at Chernobyl, and the other a history of the development of atomic weapons. Overall I found the presentation more convincing, although the constrained gallery space doesn't give Nessuno's atomic carousel quite the monumental impact that it had previously. We're also invited to view a machinima by Lion Igaly (which you can also watch here)—Stravinsky's Le Sacre works surprisingly well as the sound score.
