Caught Light - as seen at TENT London

The Chandelier installation seen at TENT London contained 12 ‘fish’ suspended at different levels forming a ‘grape’.

The fish are clear resin castings of a form that was carved by Andrea. The fish have been cast by hand, and have a hand fashioned copper hook embedded inside them, which conceals a high power LED light. The LED highlights the organic and dynamic contours of the fish – representing a glow of life force – making them come alive. The hook is very visible – representing the brutal truth.

The fish are each nearly a foot long.
