Numéro Cinq at the Movies: Ryan Cockrell’s "Fishhooks" | Introduction & Interview --- R. W. Gray | Numéro Cinq
Cockrell’s visual treatment of his subject is playful and emphasizes the absurd, as though the folly of memory and nostalgia must be loved and represented that way. The dog rubbing his butt on the floor, the old photographs and museum staging of bones, skeletons, and taxidermied animals, all emphasize through humour and with affection the line between the living and the things we do to remember them when they are gone.
