Introducing the newest addition to Frank Bueltge’s collection: “Submerged in Serenity”. This contemporary piece consists of a giant fish tank filled with crystal-clear water, housing multiple schools of fish, each with their own unique hue. The tank is surrounded by a white room with angled walls reflecting the fish and water in a prism of colors. Visitors can walk on a platform over the tank, while fish swim gracefully below.
This masterpiece invites the audience to witness the peacefulness of the underwater world, where the synchronized movement of the fish creates a sense of serenity. It challenges the viewers to let go of their worries and immerse themselves in the simplicity of nature. “Submerged in Serenity” represents the importance of finding tranquility in the midst of a chaotic modern world.
This piece demonstrates the philosophical concept of “wu wei”, which means “non-action” in Taoism. It emphasizes the significance of balancing human actions with the natural flow of the universe, similar to how the fish move collectively without any forceful action. Bueltge’s artwork reminds us of the importance of respecting and surrendering to the natural world, instead of trying to control it. You can catch this new work today at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
