Marina s is from the series of “From Whence the Waves Came”of Law Yuk Mui is her reenactment of her parents‘ story of fleeing to Hong Kong from China with a self constructed sailboat. The little wooden boat in the work is made with the haft of a hammer belonged to her late father; it drifts around the blue and channels ambiguous connection between histories of Hong Kong as a refugee city and the current socio-political anxiety.” – text by Vennes Cheng
‘From whence the waves came’ is a 5-year (2018-2022) project by Law Yuk Mui. It creates an alternative map of the city constructed through the stories of migrants from different time periods, interlaced with meaningful events, imaginary reflections and memories of the misty seascape of Victoria Harbour, South China Sea, Java Sea, Strait of Malacca and Pacific Ocean.
