FISHING(2009-2010)

The third project of river fishes is ‘Fishing’ (2010), a 7 min single channel video.

It is a video clip focusing on catching freshwater fishes itself. The activity of releasing fishes after discovering, collecting, and shooting them shows how I overcome my weakness. Catching fishes represents a defensive behaviour and symbolic meaning of possession to fulfill my soft spot. I only used nets instead of a fish hook because things I could obtain would be damaged if fishes got hurt. I dream of common benefit with fishes through release of them after catching them as careful as possible.
