Sculptor Rafael Gómezbarros has been invading public structures with his army of ant sculptures since 2007. The traveling project titled “Casa Tomada,” (Seized House), swarms architectural facades and buildings with thousands of oversized ants. It may seem like a scene from “The Land of The Lost,” but through his installations, Gómezbarros opens the discussion on issues of immigration, forced displacement, and the uprooting of peasants due to war and strife.
Each of the ants are over 2 feet in length made of fiberglass resin, fabric, and branches.
