The Impossibility Of Home

Zhiwan Cheung’s  The Impossibility of Home refers to the idea of a non-place. Viewers drift within a physical installation—a grove of artificial banana trees painted Chinatown Orange. They must navigate between two video projections on opposing walls: one a winter landscape interrupted by the same artificial banana trees; the other an actual lush banana grove in which a character wearing an orange Zentai suit wanders in various states of undress. Poetic sub-titled voiceovers alternate with a subtle drone caused by real vibrations beneath the installation’s false floor. Altogether, these components create a sense of alienation in this non-place and non-site.
