Anchor: A Prelude  2018 HD video with sound, wood and shoji paper  To remember is to have an anchor for your belonging. Exploring the condition of movements, politics of memory and resistance of the colonial gaze, Anchor: A Prelude is a video exhibition that echoes the artist’s memory in a shifting context where the horizon is warped and time is irrelevant. It is a starting point, a resonance, an act of remembering—much like a warm reminder of a rootless home.   This work was created during an artist residency at Studio Kura, Itoshima, Japan for Itoshima Art Farm International Arts Festival 2018.
