Shipment Lost at Sea (2018)

HD video, 04'04"  (produced for an online exhibition on Internet Moon Gallery)

‘Shipment Lost at Sea’ is a fragmented history of Meso-American artefacts lost at sea during their colonial displacement towards the West, a brutal naufrage.

 

Here, they regain agency whereby floating in a borderless space, they never reach their destination nor return to their point of origin — haunting the high seas, like the surviving slaves thrown overboard during the triangular trade.
