Weird Fishes considers the primordial relationship between water and humans. Through Carter’s imaginings, the exhibition considers ‘weird fishes’ as a metaphor for human beings, referencing our origins in the oceans and life’s beginning in a liquid pool. Carter’s photography investigates our complex relationship to water by playing with perception, perspective and geography to create new ways of experiencing these spaces. Weird Fishes also explores our individual and collective responses to the threat facing these fluid ecosystems in the Anthropocene. As ‘weird fishes’ we have an opportunity to immerse ourselves in this liquid world upon which we remain utterly dependent.
