Ingeborg Lüscher’s photographs taken at Gwangju market consist of a large number of „kulbi“ tied together with yellow string. This tropical fish is the symbol of physical, moral and spiritual transmutation and brings us the message „the salt of wisdom“. Ingeborg Lüscher’s experience reflects an extraordinary capacity for participation, an experience fully realized in „change“ as the only possible source of energy in the present.
