Heim Frost comprises a collection of photographs, a logbook, a single- and two-channel videos produced after my residency aboard a transpacific freighter traveling from Port Metro, Vancouver to the Port of Shanghai.
The video presents recounted narratives told by Johannes Elmar Streicher, during his position as Second Officer aboard transpacific freighter: the Hanjin Brussels. It explores notions of notions of visibility, remembrance, and authorship by engaging the personal, intimate and in some instances crude anecdotes of Streicher at sea.
This work was supported by Access Gallery for Twenty-Three Days at Sea, a travelling artist residency.
