Maritime contains video and photographic works that form parts four & five of the Econasia series. The videos Irredentist and Affirm were filmed on the Yangtze River in China and the Inland Sea in Japan, respectively. Incorporating political science text and passages from Albert Camus‘ The Plague these works hope to offer an evocative consideration of contemporary political tensions in East Asia. The videos feature sound by Sarah Phelan & Byron Dean, with vox by Yanxin Li & Jihyun Lee.
This show is perhaps the most poignant representation of the Econasia series to date and will run at Kings Gallery from May 29 until June 22 on Level 1 / 171 King Street.
