The work has previously been shown in Geneva, Switzerland where 50 fish were suspended over a residential street - the Rue des Eaux Vives (Street of Living Waters) - next to Lake Geneva as part of its Geneva Lux Festival.
I am «demonstrating my commitment to accessible and sustainable practice» by recycling the materials in the artwork, and making the artistic decision to give a new purpose and resonance to an existing artwork. In recycling and repurposing my work, I want to give these artistic fish a second life.
I would like to transform and repurpose the artwork – effectively recycling the fish to bring attention to the twin topics of ocean pollution, and over-fishing. I propose to exhibit an installation of 5 fish and nets.
