Featured Work

The Museum of Departures

2015, United Kingdom, 16mm, 6', colour, sound

The Gerrard Street Chinatown is perhaps London’s greatest museum. Everything is displayed behind glass walls– people, actions, novelties, food items. It’s the reconstruction of a culture that belongs to the other side of the world. A culture descended from a people that had departed their homeland. Through the glass’s surface reflections, the artist sees reflections of himself and remembers sounds from his recent past and echoes of his own departures.
