Hong Kong Launch of Too Salty Too Wet: Tiffany Sia (online; English)

Synopsis:

An oral history of tears, geography and necromancy in and outside of Hong Kong. Too Salty Too Wet 更咸更濕 is a hellish scroll that attempts to catch up to the frontlines of history. Inspired by thread-bound books of martial arts secrets, this is a bastard text and an assemblage of lyric that confronts news addiction, performs an exercise of breath and optical training, and holds light to occult unrest. How must we summon the invisible?

Bio:

Tiffany Sia is an artist, filmmaker and founder of Speculative Place. She is the author of 咸濕 Salty Wet, a chapbook on distance, history and desire in and outside of Hong Kong, published by Inpatient Press in 2019.
