Slipping into the Sea
Hu Wei 

Digging deeper down into the sediments of history, we find points of connection between mythologies formulated outside the dominant strands of narrative and the experience of the sea-bound diaspora: a slave ship caught in the ocean’s fury, the stateless Bajau people making a life on the sea off the Malay Archipelago, shipwrecks left behind and communities banished… Visual artist Hu Wei tries to piece together the genealogy of a fictional species, using clues from the history of electronic music and the evolution of human hearing, re-assembling a map of lost and dispersed identities.
