Hajra Waheed: Sea Change – Chapter 1: Character 1, In the Rough

11 March – 21 May 2016

The Moasaic Rooms, London


‘The first showcase of the opening chapter of Hajra Waheed’s long term project Sea Change, commenced in 2011. This visual novel is dedicated to reclaiming a sense of the intimate, the personal and the poetic from the consequences of regional development, political upheaval, and civil conflict. Through the unfolding narratives of nine individual characters who have disappeared over nine chapters, this ambitious multimedia work aims to engage the viewer in an active sense of looking for the individual story amidst the mass, in turn reflecting on the reductive value of the media’s portrayal of contemporary crisis, particularly in terms of migration.’
