Homo Desperatus on permanent display at the Verbeke Foundation

The installation Homo Desperatus is now on permenant display at the Verbeke Foundation (Kemzeke, BE). In Homo Desperatus 70,000 ants inhabited life-like scale models of human suffering. The glass cases, now minus the ant colonies, contain models of the nuclear reactor in Fukushima, a drug clinic in Germany, and a collapsed Bangladeshi garment factory – all derelict and abandoned. A video of the work reveals the dystopian world when it was still inhabited by the ant colonies. The video was previously presented at institutions in Poland, Brazil and Italy.
