Images that come from Pripyat and Chernobyl

Figures d’un Monde en Sursis – Claude Molzino, Matthias Koch

We think of the images that come from Pripyat and Chernobyl thirty years later…

…we know the hundreds of years it takes for a contaminated area to become liveable again, and this distant “as before” now seems, if not forbidden, at least not credible, …immobile image suspended in a non-present where remains only what has not been, vacuity of this endless time of the end. In the irradiated zones, the present closes in on itself in its inexorable sterility, its false eternity.
