Fish Rubbing
Sam Curtis, Eleanor Morgan

Sam Curtis and Eleanor Morgan, two artists with a shared interest in fish invite you to a night of Fish rubbing. Fish rubbing or 'Gyotaku' is a printing technique invented by Japanese fishermen to record the size of their catch. By inking the fish and printing it onto fine Japanese paper, the intricate markings and texture of the fish can be captured forever. The artists use edible squid ink to create prints, meaning that you can both print your fish and eat it. Art Night will also mark the opening of the Division of Labour Print Department; a series of print workshops and works invited artist groups and artists throughout the month of July.
