Fish Tank by Haoge Liu

6'/ China/Los Angeles Premiere

The work Fish Tank has adopted a structure of multiple narratives, combining non-narrative and conscious images, The fictional, fragmental images and video clips have in fact been assembled and linked up with various ideologies and stories, with the effect of"breathing". With daily objects and shifts in graphic consciousness, this work displays various themes: the constraint of people and objects; the mass unconscious people getting constrained in space like fish in fish tanks; and people's understanding of the multi-dimensional space and time in a fish tank. Like time and space, everyone has to circle back from beginning to the end - just like a Mobius strip.
