Les poissons rouges du Touch - St Martin du Touch 2007

An exhibition of 16 photographers on the theme "Les poissons du Touch". A pasting of pictures at Tournefeuille during the ManifestO festival of 2007. In preparation for my work I made a cube of concrete into which I put a plastic goldfish. From there I launched my goldfish to travel into whatever realm it wished to go.

St Martin du Touch is a small city which has quickly grown up in the suburb of Toulouse leading to the construction of many housing estates. I came to see this famous Touch intimately. As I studied the landscape I noticed there ran a dirty river with a lot of rubbish.

Did my goldfish in concrete commit suicide or did somebody help a little ?
