Silverfish is a process-based installation by Atufa Rais and Tayyab Hussain about constructing a labyrinth of language. The physical space will be transformed into a compact, accessible labyrinth of about ten thousand books or more (of random subjects) one can feed on while playing the role of a silverfish. These books, texts, catalogs, archives and manuscripts will be collected from various personal libraries and collections. The setup can also be seen as a performance where visitors identify themselves as silverfish.
‘Silverfish’ has been realised within the framework of Five Million Incidents, 2019-2020, conceived by Goethe Institut / Max Mueller Bhavan in collaboration with Raqs Media Collective.
