Thanks to S├ębastien Gindre, Thomas Big Pants, Aurelia Balcellls and participants in the collective body project.
Installation and performance. Continuing our research into the collective body we invite the public at the exhibition to participate in a collective body action. The public were invited to eat giant toasted ants harvested in Columbia by the Guane Indians, during the short rainy season between March and June. They are then toasted in a mud pot over an open fire. The Guane Indians believe the ants have youth giving and aphrodisiac properties.
