This week I have been helping to instal the latest exhibition at the Lismore Regional Art Gallery, Art Out of Water:The Fish of Art.
Melissa Hirsch's Barnacles stood out with their delicacy and form. Made from fishing line, the objects were originally part of a solo exhibition that commented on the commercial uses of oceans. It looks as if they are crocheted very tightly with pale pink fishing line that shimmers in the light. Very ephemeral. xxN
