The CURRA symposium is coming soon and so is the Fishing for the Future Film Festival, both in Norris Point. It will also be the premiere of my fish plant work. I have finally come up with a title, simple but somehow evocative: “Plant”. It suggests growth at first glance. Below, a few outtakes. I was quite amused with the sight of cod drying on a cod pot in Trout river. I did the shot in colour (digital) too, but somehow I like the pathos in this one more since it is more subdued.
I am quite excited at finally getting to see the work up. I am hoping to show it in multiple sites in the community of Norris Point. It is really only when we see the work up on its own and being handed over to a public that we get any sense of how well the work went. We are always sure of our methodologies, skill sets and creative instincts; but it is only when the work enters into a dialogue that the work actually gains a sense of conclusion.
