Karin Roy Andersson has created new pieces of magic. She writes about CATCHING BIG FISH:
There is something magnetic with the undiscovered world of the oceans. Frightening, exciting and with the beauty that comes with the tension between these feelings.
What stories are to be found deep down there where we all once came from?
I love fish; their shape, fens and the pattern of the fish scale. I am intrigued by how they move, their bodies and faces and their, in our eyes, exceptional behaviour.
In a society where the view on what is normal is still quite conservative, the way some fish species change sex, size and identity gives you a new perspective.A few years ago I started working with scales making chains of thin silver flakes.Now some of the scales have grown larger and I have added elements of recycled plastics.To me the pieces looks like traces from an intense struggle catching a big fish.When adding the plastic I sadly realized that jumping into the ocean you might be more likely to end up with plastics on your body than scales from a fish.
