Remembering Fukashima

It's hard to believe that it's almost been one year since an earthquake rocked Japan and caused the Fukushima nuclear crisis. A crisis that is, by no means, resolved. Readers in Hong Kong can get themselves to the Fringe Club where, for the first two weeks of March, Greenpeace is holding a photo exhibition commemorating this tragic event.

365 days after the Fukushima nuclear crisis, while life goes on in Hong Kong, Japan is still striving to deal with the aftermath. Nuclear energy is highly dangerous and the effect is long-term and far-reaching. From Chernobyl to Fukushima, it has proven time and time again how nuclear energy can destroy a city and harm future generations. Greenpeace aims to inspire the public to reflect on the possibility of a truly safe and energy-efficient future. This exhibition features photo documentation of Fukushima by award-winning Dutch photographer Robert Knoth, and works by Hong Kong and Japanese artists.

Exhibition period: 1 -14 March 2012
Time: Mon – Sat (noon to 10pm, Sunday closed)
Venue: Fringe Club (Chan Lai-ling Gallery, fotogalerie and roof garden) 2 Lower Albert Road, Central, Hong Kong (MTR Central Exit D1)
Participating Artists: Annabella Li, Blackpaper, Kongkee, Ohkubo Jun, Tsang Tak-ping, Wong Wing-fung.
