‘Fish’ plumbs beauty of ocean depths

The Commercial Appeal - Go Memphis - - ARTS - By Fredric Koep­pel Spe­cial to The Com­mer­cial Ap­peal

“Fish” is the most mag­i­cal thing I have seen in Mem­phis prob­a­bly ever. And the coolest, too.

To call “Fish,” on view through Aug. 13 at Crosstown Arts, an im­mer­sive, site-spe­cific au­dio and vis­ual me­dia in­stal­la­tion doesn’t be­gin to ex­press the sense of move­ment, beauty, wit and mys­tery that it con­veys. Cre­ated by a team of some of the best­known lo­cal artists and film­mak­ers — Laura Jean Hock­ing, Sarah Flem­ing and Christo­pher Reyes — the gallery-fill­ing work evinces a pow­er­ful sense of col­lab­o­ra­tive imag­i­na­tion, tal­ent and, per­haps above all, co­or­di­na­tion.
