Silver Fish is a process-based installation by Atufa RaisTayyab Hussain and Reshma Khatoon about constructing a labyrinth of language.

The physical space will be transformed into a compact, accessible labyrinth of about ten thousand books or more (of random subjects) one can feed on while playing the role of a silverfish.

These books, texts, catalogs, archives and manuscripts will be collected from various personal libraries and collections. The setup can also be seen as a performance where visitors identify themselves as silverfish.
