Installation: Ants

"Ants" by Rafael Gomez Barros, 2010

Barros attached thousands of enlarged fiberglass ants to government buildings and historical monuments, including the facade of the National Congress in Bogota.  These ants “symbolize the displacement of the people by the ongoing armed conflict in Colombia,” though you could be forgiven for mistaking it for the set of a monster b-movie.
