Power Plant

Power Plant is art project dedicated to nuclear and power structures, interfaces and infrastructures concerning human activities in geological time. In the centre of the project is the coded, saturated and heavily controlled environment of the decommissioned Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant (IAE) in Lithuania.

Ignalina Nuclear Power Plant is a decommissioned two-unit RBMK-1500 nuclear power station in Visaginas Municipality, Lithuania. It was built by the Soviet Union during the cold war period and now is shut down and demolished by the European Union. In the region, near the IAE site, Belorussia built its own new nuclear reactor – Astrav, the Belarusian nuclear power plant - with a great support from Russia, the terrorist state accusing neighbors of using energy as a weapon. Not far from there is the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant which a nuclear accident had paralyzed and heavily polluted the region in 1986. Recently (in 2022), the Ukrainian crisis and Russian war in Ukraine have established new energy behaviors, new rules for energy disasters, Russia shows muscles and targets energy infrastructure, destroys heating facilities, uses cold (and energy) as weapons as well as challenges Zaporozhe nuclear power station’s status.

In the project there is presented infrastructure of power within the nuclear industry: reactors, radioactive waste, nuclear emission, numerical coding, control panels, and interfaces. Thus, most of these materials will be locally buried, recycled and upcycled, however, the consequences will remain forever. Let’s hope that the project’s documentary photographs and artistic film will only remind us, but not put us into a conflict, about the uncertain times of this period. This project can serve as a point of departure to inquire into the uncertainty of power struggles.
