INEX Gallery (Belgrade, Serbia)

On the texts in the exhibited place it is written that those 1000 pieces of key ring with pieces from rubble taken from Fukushima, where had a sever nuclear plant meltdown. I connected Japan where I was born, and Serbia where the exhibition was taken place by two incidents happened in both countries. Japan had an earthquake, which caused nuclear plants meltdown in 2011. Serbia got bombs containing depleted uranium by NATO in 1999. Those key rings with “radiated” rubble were displayed in the gallery and they were offered to audience to take as a souvenir.
