SHORT LIST

Statement

A picture with a crucian carp

The image of fish is often found in the category of kitchen paintings in still-life painting. I am interested in how fish depicted as foodstuffs in paintings are captured in photographs.

In my hometown, crucian carp is the most common fish people eat in their daily lives. It is also customary to offer crucian carp at some rural funerals. Therefore, I believe that crucian carp is not only a symbol of daily life, but also a metaphor for death. By cultivating fungus on photographic paper printed with a photograph of crucian carp, I hope to connect the "life" of the fungus with the "daily life" and "death" of the photograph. In addition, different new pictorial images emerge from the photograph merged with the coincidence of the growth of the mold.The image of fish is often found in the category of kitchen paintings in still-life painting.
