Nuke est un espace de création et d’expressions, par son magazine, sa galerie et ses expositions, où les artistes définissent et dessinent, ensemble, l’autoportrait d’une Génération Polluée.
Face aux enjeux et aux obsessions du monde contemporain, à la mutation de notre environnement, aux jeux des forces économiques, à l’état inquiétant de la planète, à la destruction et la beauté, la Génération Polluée ne se cherche plus de raison d’être, plus de raison de se maintenir, elle crée tous les jours ses nouveaux mythes et s’y adonne avec ferveur. Cette Génération n’est ni sacrifiée, ni désespérée, ni blasée, ni vaine, ni vénale elle est simplement mais parfois superbement Polluée.
Nuke's artists include:
La Fratrie, an artist duo, made up of brothers Luc and Karim Berchiche, who create sculptures depicting fictional worlds. Full of humour but accompanied by a sense of the absurd, they represent the desire to escape from this universe into another, in which the power of imagination offers a sense of order and purpose.
Jeremy Kost, whose work consisting of polaroid photography and video often takes the form of fragmented portrait collages, expansive grids and enlarged polaroids, all dealing with themes of innocence and the play of power, sexual attraction and desire felt for the unobtainable other.
Douglas White, who works exclusively with found materials to create both sculptures and 2D works that bring a transformative, poetic beauty to the discarded, as seen in his wax moon and rubber palm-tree pieces.
Christophe Brunnquell, whose grotesque self-portraits and nightmarish drawings starkly expose the parts of human consciousness that we try to repress, the artist's inner turmoil expressing itself outwardly; torturing, mutating and perverting his features until he becomes something inhumane and monstruous.
Keja Ho Kramer, whose narrative films tackle difficult subjects such as politics and crime, bringing a hard-edged, analytical eye to bare.
Mark Horowitz, the comedian-cum-artist whose social happenings and surreal objects propose the thinness of meaning as the raw material for the production of his work.
David Birkin, whose dark photographic works explore themes of transience and the ephemeral, the brief traces left by humans on this earth especially evident in his series of long-exposed, medium format and Bacon-esque self-referential Confessions.
