Picture of the ants in the galleryBen Blackall

A swarm of giant ants invade the gallery walls in this extraordinary installation by Colombian artist Rafael Gómezbarros from the Saatchi Gallery, London.

Exploring ideas of displacement and immigration these ants are assembled from two human skull casts invoking thoughts of life and death.

You can find out more about the installation on the Casa Tomada Website.
