Fish over sea

Eighty-four goldfish flew over the Tasman Sea on March 21 as part of the New Zealand-wide One Day Sculpture series of temporary public art works, this conceived by Italian artist Paola Pivi entitled ‘I Wish I Am Fish’, which was commissioned by Auckland Art Gallery curator Natasha Conland. Conland says: “There is an imaginative generosity to the work which belies the extravagance of the gesture. It was an eerily liberating project and perhaps one befitting its location staged on an island nation.” New Zealand’s first nationwide series of temporary public artworks, One Day Sculpture involves New Zealand and international artists in producing a work to occur during a 24-hour period.
