Tank captures a moment of desperation. As our waters rise and empty, this work questions our ability to rectify consumer capitalism and its damaging impact on marine life. By attempting to return processed fish to water, Tank is a tongue in cheek bid to bring them back to life.

Winner of the 2019 Student Art Prize presented by Next Wave in partnership with the New Student Precinct Project. CGI box design by Pat Hamilton, KALEIDO Studio.   

Jen Valender & Next Wave acknowledge and pay respect to the traditional owners and custodians of the land on which the University of Melbourne stands; the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nations.
