Curated by Tessa Giblin

This summer, visual art is taking over Project Arts Centre with one of our most ambitious exhibitions to date. Riddle of the Burial Grounds puzzles over signs, forms and communication, motivated by one of the major problems facing our planet – the markings and warnings around nuclear burial sites.

Stored in man-made concrete-clad tunnels deep within mountains or in repurposed salt mines, radioactive matter is being buried that will continue to have the potential to create catastrophic disaster deep into the future, into a period of time we can barely perceive of, yet alone imagine.

We are entering an era that is defined by our impact on earth – the Anthropocene – an era in which human actions have become the dominant force of change on the planet.

Through sculpture, film, photography, documentary, fiction, science-fiction, history, landscapes and imagined futures, Riddle of the Burial Grounds attempts to conceive of a time in which language, signs and forms will be beyond our current comprehension.

How do we communicate beyond the decaying half-life of our current knowledge?

And what will we leave behind?
