Generator projects dundee 2003

Louise Schmid's "Anti-Nuc. Pills" is an ongoing series of frames from some post-accpocalyptic survival guide/comic strip. The hard-edge black shapes that form both architecture and occupants of those works bend under their own significance. Urgent signage forgets its meaning, street lamps weep and archival storage facilities fall apart at the seams. Within this tumult however is a teLnderness of touch that unpicks at panic, finding liberty and poetry in the shadow of the bomb.
