D: Goldfish—Liquid Dreams / Goldfish Liquid Dreams

Filling the gallery wall is a massive projection of a goldfish video. In the darkened space, the walls to left and right present lightbox images of photographs from Ninagawa’s Liquid Dreams photo book. The goldfish float around, as if they were colours given form and movement.

“A creature twisted into shape from mutant forms of carp. But it swims about as if it is quite happy.”
