Working title: „Ants“, 2016

„Ants“ consits of a plastic of an ant-head (11 x 11 x 27inch), a video (48 min), and an object (9 x 8 inch)

The ant-head is sculpted to human scale from plastic packaging material.

The video depicts a full-screen close-up of an ant hill. A plastic figurine is placed amidst the ants, its size matching that of the insects. These immediately begin to drag the figure out of the frame. The scenario is repeated around 15 times in various positions, before the video loops back to the beginning.

A separate display case contains the mounted, now empty plastic frame in which the figurine was originally produced – a discarded waste or by-product of the manufacturing process.
