‘Aquacultural Encounters’

Residency and exhibition, 2015-16
University of Stirling


The exhibition ‘Aquacultural Encounters’ reflects Fanny Lam Christie’s exploration and interpretation of the healthcare processes involved in fish farming. A year-long research residency at the Institute of Aquaculture at the University of Stirling culminated in the exhibition at the university and was supported by Creative Scotland.

Specimens evoke displays of laboratory and natural history museum collections. Theintricate glasswork consists of 42 pieces.

Christie was intrigued by the science of fish pathology and the complexity of marine micro-organisms that affect fish. The Specimens series aims to highlight the significance of pathology in the prevention of diseases.
