Fuji Hiroshi’s project
Fuji Hiroshi’s cleared of a stretch of drain was an integral part of one of his works. It became a 2 day silent ritual of cleansing and demarcating of site. He needed to involve and nurture his space before the understated presence of a tiny fish could be later confronted with a bright red and white sign shouting ‘HERE’.
Another work used giant sized fish cushions sewed and painted by the artist himself. Set out in a hired rickshaw, Fuji took the people of Modinagar for rides in his riksha – playing as he did, with the word ‘reecksha’ and ‘deeksha’ in Hindi and Japanese respectively.
