Fish Cube


Mosteiro de Tibães (cerca)

1,5€ (access ticket to the Mosteiro de Tibães fence)

As sea levels rise, it becomes important to consider how human infrastructure will be used by fish in the future. For the last few years, SUPERFLEX has been engaged with ongoing research that has involved listening and learning from marine life in an effort to determine the needs and preferences of other species. Fish Cube maximises the surface area of a cube, a building block of human architecture, without producing any waste material. Using an innovative wire-cutting technique, the cube is divided into four equal parts through only two single cuts. These parts can be arranged in any number of configurations, creating sculptural infrastructure that functions as art for humans and potential shelter for fish. This is the latest collaboration between SUPERFLEX and KWY.studio, who have previously worked together on a number of large-scale art projects.

Fish Cube consists of three configurations assembled throughout the park. Each artwork is accompanied by an audio file that can be listened via the QR code available on site.


SUPERFLEX is an artist group founded in 1993 by Jakob Fenger, Bjørnstjerne Christiansen, and Rasmus Rosengren Nielsen. They have been developing a new kind of urbanism that includes the perspectives of plants and animals, and aims to move society towards interspecies living. The group has consistently worked with a wide variety of collaborators, from gardeners to engineers, exploring the creation of alternative models for social and economic organisation.

KWY.studio is a multidisciplinary platform investigating the nature of collaboration within the context of specific projects. KWY’s projects are collaborations with artists, writers, curators, designers and other architects. Each project begins with dialogue and analysis between the collaborators, driven by a process-oriented methodology that often leads to diverse thoughts that would otherwise be unimaginable.
