By Jenna Watt. A Contact Flying Solo 2016 commission.​

Award winning artist Jenna Watt presents: Faslane, a hugely powerful and timely insight into the UK’s current nuclear debate. Her Majesty’s Naval Base Clyde, or Faslane, situated 40 miles outside Glasgow, is home to the UK’s nuclear missile program: Trident. A Flying Solo commission.

With her family having worked in Faslane with Trident all her life, and with her friends protesting at the gates, Jenna endeavours to understand her relationship to Trident, the wider nuclear debate and activism. Drawing upon interviews with individuals at the front line of the nuclear debate, including activists and MOD personnel, Jenna navigates her own journey through the politics, the protests, the peace camps and freedom of information requests to find out answers to the questions we should all be asking about our nuclear deterrent.
