Proving Ground: Nevada, Toronto

Erin Siddall

Proving Ground: Nevada, Toronto investigates how in the current era of instability and escalating nuclear risk, histories of the post-nuclear era resist representation. Part of a larger body of work, this installation centres on an inactive Cold-War-era anti-nuclear protest camp adjacent to the Mercury Nuclear test site in Nevada, and examines invisible environmental hazards, hidden histories, traumatic events, and the often misleading divisions between safe and unsafe.
