Heidi Kawai Smith
Racing to say goodbye to everyone, questioning what could be brought along and who shall be left behind. An impossible void opened up yet unable to stop, quietly got on the plane yet wanted to shout out on top of the lung. Planning, moving, running, swearing and crying. Didn’t know when the next time I would be here or if I could be here again. Would I see this place again? Memory lapses, who was there? I documented a family’s move to the U.K. from Hong Kong in 2021, and it triggered my own questions about my relationship with this city. A selection of archived images juxtaposition with the new arrival intend to make some sense.
