Michael Bullock: Rubber Fish (Con Cá Cao Su)

21 September – 20 October, 2001

Rubber Fish (Con Cá Con Su) is an exhibition by Michael Bullock which was made during an artist residency in Hanoi, Vietnam. It features a school of fish made from recycled car, bicycle and truck inner tubes, inflated and suspended in mid-air. The work was inspired by the contrast of social conditions in Vietnam. The fish is also a potent symbol in Vietnamese culture, portraying luck and fertility.
