Exhibition Annotation:
Produced in response to the 2010 British Petroleum (BP) oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, Emek describes his piece: “First you see the biggest image—a dead fish with a gas mask—then you see the symbol of BP, then you connect it with the wordplay.” He says the dead fish is meant to symbolize the oil spill’s disastrous effects on both the environment and on the livelihoods of Gulf fishermen, and hopes people who see his poster will “remember that our world is fragile and connected.”
