Belarus more than other countries suffered from the Chernobyl disaster. Radionuclides contaminated almost 23% of the territory. Gradually, the state returns the land for economic use, the liquidators lose their benefits, and a new nuclear power plant is being built in the north-west of the country. In 2021, the first unit will be put into commercial operation. On April 26, 2022, the reactor of Unit 2 was physically commissioned. The tender for the project was won by a Russian company, and it was carried out on Russian credit.

Rehabilitated lands, deprivation of benefits, construction of a new nuclear power station are things of the same order, liquidation the memory of the disaster, which took one half-life of cesium-137.

At first the project Liquidation was conceived as a typology of absence, a series of liquidators, a faceless person who disappeared for the state, which could not be identified by any signs, as well as it was impossible to recognize radiation. But liquidators did not disappear - like all of the radioactive cosmos which was materialized in people, objects, places that became waste materials of the disaster.
