David Porteus - Dead Fish

Gallery 3

We are living on islands, lifeboats on a planet that is 71% water, 95% of that is ocean. Beyond that is infinite space. 94% of life is aquatic but most of that is not named or even classified. Mostly, we know the fish we eat, seafood. Dead Fish is a compelling photographic exhibition inspired by these facts.

Art Exhibition previously on at red gallery in Fitzroy-Collingwood precinct, Victoria, Australia.
From Wednesday 25 November 2015 to Saturday 12 December 2015
Launch Wednesday 25 November 2015, 6-8pm
