Artist Jaroslaw Koziara grew this gigantic ‘crop circle’ fish on fields between Horodyszcze (Poland) and Warez (Ukraine) for the Land Art Festival. He wanted to symbolize the history of unity and of trade along the border between the two nations, showing that nature and culture exist beyond the geo-political borders laid down by humans. The artist grew the installation by sowing 23 kinds of plants along the border in the shape of two fish. Speaking about the project, Koziara said: “Ukraine is not a part of the Schengen area and thus is the dividing line for the whole European continent. But artists cannot agree with that – this is how we create ideas that bring to life extraordinary border defying projects.”
