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.
