Deep Down Tidal
From fibreglass cables to drunken bodies to sunken cities and forgotten stories, the sea is home to a complex and heartrending network of knowledge and communication. This conception of water as a site of different traumas and thus an embodying logic of colonial technologies is developed by Rezaire in the course of the work. With its spiritual properties water can also be seen as a symbol of purity and a healing substance. In this sense water may be an interface to understand and potentially help heal colonial technologies.
