The Radiograde species

The radiogrades, by French artist France Cadet, is a morphological, annatomical and biological study of a new animal order that questions several scientifical aspects. In particular, the danger of accidents due to the lack of control on radioactivity.


The Radiogrades represents creatures able to adapt to a high level of radioactivity and also a study of protective suits and hermetic boxes for beings unable to adapt.

The artists reasearch goes mainly through the building of the TchernobylHome, a room that acts as a sample of this new world: 1m-long flies with heads made of gas-masks or smaller flies with heads made of bulb that light on when they suck batteries.
