Tomorrow a herring will swim a thousandth over the Atlantic Ocean and then return home to the water where it usually lives to recall the vast intake of gruel and other types of sugar-free cooked creams that the Danes of the past lived off when food was scarce. Organizer Iffer Body holds a ladle forward and points to it with the other hand.
“It is only this particular herring that must be commemorated. All other invited people are on a raft in the Sejero Bay without actually figuring out what is going on. In this way we concentrate the thought movement itself, to commemorate, in a single fish brain.”
