Goldfish Liberation Movement

ISHIBASHI Tomoya

Media performance, Bio art [Japan]

A project attempting to take a goldfish cultivated through selective breeding of a crucian carp, and return it, through reverse selective breeding, to its original state. This process is proposed as the “Goldfish Liberation Movement”, an animal welfare activity to recover the “wild nature” of pets, who struggle to survive in natural environments. This contradiction of “liberation” through reverse breeding questions the nature and morality of expressive media that uses living organisms.
