Oto Hudec - Flying Fish
This latest exhibition from Slovak artist Flying Fish (a.k.a. Oto Hudec) aspires to acculmulate objects that we put to everyday use, often without realising their origin, to mirror the world of international trade.
The Porto-based artist studied at Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava, and has based 'Traffic Jam' around the concept of the uniformity and traffic generated by international commerce.
New Zealand apples, Chinese-made computers and beers from Mexico are to name a few of the items we regularly use or consume, unwittingly playing our role in this global economic development.
