Wait I’m From Wuhan is the story of a Chinese adoptee struggling to decide whether or not to search for her birth family told via social media. Adopted as a baby from Hubei province into a White British family, to Jasmine, Wuhan was just a word on her birth certificate – until now. Bombarded with images of masked faces and deserted streets, Jasmine’s head fills with questions about the family she left behind.
The project was commissioned by HOME and Chinese Arts Now as part of the Homemakers project. Homemakers is a series of new commissions, where HOME have invited their favourite artists and artistic partners to combine to create work at home, for an audience who are also at home.
Wait I’m From Wuhan is free to access but if you would like to support the work of artist Naomi Sumner Chan and to help Chinese Arts Now to continue to support more artists through this very tough time then please do consider contributing some money via this link the project has a suggested donation price of £5.
For those with a visual impairment audio versions of the blog posts are available. Jasmine’s Instagram posts have alt text added to make the images accessible to blind and partially sighted audiences who use a screenreader.
