Riusuke Fukahori is not one to take the easy route to realizing his vision. For his latest exhibition, “Goldfish Salvation,” Fukahori unveiled his wonderfully meditative work for the first time in the UK.
The installation art looks incredibly three-dimensional, despite the fact that the work is two-dimensional images layered on top of one another. The fish are free-floating entities in a weird gelatinous space — they are stuck in time.
However, it is interesting to note that the installation art feels similar to the recent fad of printing everything in 3D. One could imagine that in an alternate universe, this is how 3D models would have be made many years ago.
Riusuke Fukahori credits his pet goldfish for helping him through times of artist’s block and ever since, has used them as a source of inspiration.
