In periods the wet universe is caught undersurface. Have a glimpse with watering eyes… A world with multi-ethnical good-and-evil-cohabitation. They do eat each other, too!

To observe a 112×182 cm version of the Indian Ocean is not a bad way to start your day under our Nordic skies. Light, warm, calm and peaceful. A paradisiac atmosphere. The islands are called Anantara Veli and Anantara Dhigu, surrounded by the inconceivable Indian Ocean and a quiet meditative mood. But under the still surface, there is life. A whole lot of life. A multiethnic myriad of swarms, independents, flamboyants, phlegmatics, fish, fiddling in numerous layers – and a single dog (in the bottom middle). You are tempted to think that Jacob Herskind portraits the human race in all its diversity and ever-changing sense of direction – but let us stick to the meditative snapshot in which all intentions are cancelled – and where all fish, small as well as big, live together in harmony and cohesion. By all means, sure enough they do eat each other now and then – but that is just part of reality and is absolutely natural. The limited plant growth and the almost non-existing colours are also part of the natural theme, as it is actually a problem that the corals pale and disappear – and of course, everything is done to save them. However, the fishes hare not to blame. They just live there. If it is actually fish that we’re talking about. (TEXT: Lena Larsen)
