Becoming Alluvium

2019 Color PG FR/en 00:16:41

Becoming Alluvium observes the environmental changes downstream due to the expansion of agriculture, overfishing and the economic migration of farmers to urban areas, with a focus on the perceptions of the impact of environmental change on nature and human lives. Through different levels of narrative perception and speaking simultaneously of real and imaginary worlds, Phan proposes alternate versions of reality, building a multi-layered, visual, thrilling and poetical body of work which goes beyond a purely historical or political point of view, exploring current questions on food security and our ecological responsibility towards agricultural environments.
