A site of longing, a holiday spot, paradise— myths and ideas of the ocean and islands. In a profound montage of set pieces from pop culture, art- and film history, Wreckage takes a holiday sets the sunny side of the maritime cosmos in a binding relationship with its dark side: distress at sea, shipwreck, a watery grave. The ocean turns red—why don’t we simply wait a few million years?
