CHINA NOT CHINA

2018 / 16mm / color / sound / 1S / 14' 10

Hong Kong marked 20 years since its hand over to China; half way through the planned 40-year « one country, two systems » transition. Taiwan, once imperial China, once Formosa, now ROC (Republic of China) on the edge of the PRC (People's Republic of China). Multiple exposures of street scenes distort space and place creating a fluid sense of impermanence and transition, of two states somewhere between China and not China.
