These porcelain slip cast flasks feature images of Norilsk, Russia, one of the most polluted cities in the world. The city’s inhabitants live in a toxic wasteland of severe pollution with acid rain and smog. The artists share a strong conviction about the deadly effects of industrial emissions on the health of the inhabitants who must live there, and seek to honor their struggle by finding beauty in the bleak. The five flasks represent the five factories in Norilsk, and are marked with the geographical coordinates of Norilsk and an emblem reflecting the history of the city.
