DESCRIPTION

Andrea Pinheiro has produced a remarkable, hand made, 12-volume, 2,450-page publication that documents the name, one per page, of every nuclear bomb detonation in the world since 1945. Where no name exists, the page is left blank. Pinheiro has spent a decade conducting historical research into nuclear bomb tests, especially in relation to the history of photography, such as how fogged film led to the discovery of radiation. The artist has produced a highly unique historical archive that, significantly, contains no images and that gives every nuclear event equal significance.

Pinheiro is a Vancouver based artist, curator and educator who is currently teaching at Algoma University in Sault St. Marie, Ontario. This book work extends from her mixed-media works that investigate the technological developments of photography as a chemical interaction. Pinheiro is represented by Republic Gallery, Vancouver.
