Artists in Chernobyl ? What is Tchernobserv about ?

The ''Brut de Béton '' Company and its director Bruno Boussagol (inspired by Svetlana Alexievitch) have initiated a French-speaking artistic presence in the Chernobyl area, especially in 2006 with the ''Diagonale de Tchernobyl'', a journey across Europe and a one-month stay in the surroundings of Krasiatichi.

In 2007, Morgan Touzé and Pascal Rueff started a series of artist-in-residence programs, a scheme under the name of Tchernobserv. The idea is straightforward enough : you experiment living in a contaminated territory, then give feedback using your own craft.

The following artists took part in the project (in alphabetical order):

Our experience of the region is therefore based on our many trips to the southwest area surrounding Chernobyl.
