The work of Cécile Massart is focused on researching a new means of conveying the memory of radioactive waste sites in the landscape. After numerous travels in nuclearized countries she exhibited her work and it was published under the title ‘An archived site for alpha, beta, gamma’.
In 2008 the artist designed a series of markers and the book ‘COVER’ was issued.
Her objective is to inscribe this unique 21st century archeological stratum in the landscape thereby calling for the responsibility of everyone. What kind of energy policy do we want for the future? What heritage do we want to pass on?
When it comes to high-level waste the artist opens up new fields of investigation with the "laboratory": It brings together scientists and researchers/guardians among others and it is passed on to future generations. They develop and relay over time the memory of theses sites on the Earth’s surface.
