ARTIST STATEMENT

Guangzhou, China, hosts one of the world’s largest markets where shark fins are processed to isolate an elastic protein, the primary fin-soup ingredient. Destructive fishing practices, including shark finning, unsustainably kill >100 million sharks annually. Shark conservation requires drastically reduced catches and protection for critical breeding, nurseries, and feeding grounds.
