The multi-screen installation BAD STARS combines several videos depicting destructive and creative forces. The artist observes associations between power relations, systems of exploitation and climate change. The artwork refers to the Canadian industrial site called Sarnia Chemical Valley. >> >>

“BAD STARS is a meditation on both natural forces (atmospheric, geologic, environmental) and human forces (social, political), revealing the permeability and vulnerability of bodies to environments, and considering the ways disaster, and its remedies, surrounds us daily.” (Heather Davis) >>
