Nobuho Nagasawa was born in Tokyo and received her M.F.A from Hochschule der Kunst, Berlin, in 1985. An award-winning interdisciplinary artist investigating cultural history and memory, politics, the environment and architecture, Nagasawa is particularly known for her work in the field of site-specific installation and public art.
Created for the solo exhibition "The Atomic Cowboy: The Daze After," Nuke Cuisine takes as its subject the American military's testing of eleven atomic bombs in 1953 on the Yucca Flats in Nevada, the fallout from which allegedly reached the film set of Howard Hughes' The Conqueror, starring John Wayne and Susan Hayward, in Snow Canyon, Utah. There were allegations at the time that many cast members and extras were affected, and subsequently died or fell ill. With obvious reference to her homeland, Nagasawa critques the American military-industrial complex that would rise to power in the post-war era of consumerism that would find its ultimate artistic expression in Andy Warhol's Soup Cans of the early 60s.
