Abstract

A short spin-off of the exhibition "On the Palm of the Uknown"at the Lakes International Comic Arts Festival 2017. Commissioned by LICAF, this groundbreaking exhibition by acclaimed graphic novelist Fumio Obata makes surprising connections between the nuclear plants at Fukushima and Sellafield. Originally from Japan, Fumio has spent years researching the aftermath of the devastation caused by a massive tsunami at the Fukushima power plant in 2011. In experimental and abstract artworks, Fumio explores the invisible connections and sentiments between the two different worlds. Without taking a political position Fumio reflects the ambivalent and mixed opinions people have about the nuclear industry, in a comic strip format, based upon his interviews and meetings with local people.
