Casa Tomada

Casa Tomada

Giant ants swarm The Lowry gallery in tribute to the struggle of displaced and migrant communities.

This exhibition is only ever seen in places which have a history as a point of arrival and departure - Havana, Bogota, London and now, Salford.

There are 1000 ants representing displaced people, often because of war. The hard-working ants soldier on no matter what, endlessly towards their goal, and the exhibition seeks to reflect the valuable contribution of migrant workers to society.

It's a fascinating piece, creepy and beautiful.
