"BECQUEREL", is a physical response to the events surrounding the Chernobyl nuclear disaster in Ukraine, 1986. While not a literal translation of Chernobyl, "BECQUEREL" embodies the fear of radiation poisoning and the delay in notification to the people of Chernobyl and neighboring Pripyat. "BECQUEREL" hopes to evoke some of the unknown physical consequences, loss of relationships, inability to disconnect from an environment, and trying to rid the body of radiation without scientific knowledge and understanding.
