Ganzer Fisch 2019

Glass fish, envelopes, ink, 25 x 5 x 7 cm, 2019

Ganzer Fisch is the outcome of a week long Art Symposium in Ganzer, Germany under the theme “Glücklich unterwegs und frei” (Happily on our way and free). Reflecting on the idea of returning to familiar places through encountering the foreign this has become a collaborative performance in which I have become a fish in the German fields. In 75 handwritten letters which I delivered to every single household in the village I asked for their help. Explaining my temporary immobility I asked them to help me move around through carrying the glass fish to a different location on the field it was exhibited on for 3 months. Through their collaboration the fish got to wander and slowly finds its place.
