Debbie Fish // September 2018

Debbie Fish is an installation artist and set designer based in Wellington, New Zealand and she joined us for the month of September. Her installations are inspired by environmental and social concerns and she is particularly interested in the use of found and recycled materials in her work.

During her residency at the Fish Factory, Debbie was working on a visual exploration of a new series of works inspired by the ‘Doughnut Economy’, through the lens of the fishing industry. Debbie spent her time examining different textures from the area and combined these into a series of small mixed media works that draw on rust, stingray skin and displaced data points.

She is drawn to fishing villages, having spent a month in 2017 in Taiwan as one of the artists in residence as part of the Keelung NMMST (National Museum of Marine Science and Technology) International Art Project, creating a work School of Scales using found and recycled materials and the help of local school children.
