This paint­ing pic­tures a gold­fish, the domest­ic­ated anim­al by essence. Hav­ing a single plastic bag as a tem­por­ary or some­times per­man­ent hab­it­at, we offer here a meta­phor for human­ity where some have decided not to give up and fight for what they believe in. The use of the gold­fish and its alleged “short memory” is the per­fect meta­phor for humans who are aware of all the envir­on­ment­al issues around the world but seem to for­get about them as fast as we are revol­ted by them and go on with our daily lives.
“Inno­cence” solo show.
