Leaning over a carp pond, a child exclaims to another: "Look at the fish! They're gasping for air."
Inspired by a long flight returning from South America to Singapore - a trip that lasts almost two days, Carps provokes a brief sensory dislocation. It inhabits a fictitious non-place in suspension between worlds, where it is clear neither where we are coming from nor where we are headed.
