This photograph was shot during the performance I wish I am fish by Paola Pivi, that took place on March 21st 2009 in Auckland in New Zealand. The performance was part of the event One Day Sculpture. The performance consisted of a passenger airplane with 84 seats flying over New Zealand for three hours with 84 gold fish as passengers, one in each seat. The plane landed in Auckland airport to be met by the welcoming crowd of the opening in a private hangar. The same night a video documentary of the performance was projected on to a large elevated wall in a square in downtown Auckland.
The performance was coproduced by Paola Pivi, Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki, Auckland, The Chartwell Trust, Auckland.
