“Equilibrium” is a striking art installation that weaves a narrative of the often-overlooked significance of wasps in the delicate balance of our ecosystem. Comprising of 50 unique and meticulously handcrafted wasps, this visceral piece invites viewers to contemplate the intricate harmony that exists within the natural world.
These insects, often misunderstood and feared, silently fulfil their role in safeguarding our ecosystem and securing our collective future. Their protection, invasion, or even extinction hinges on the fragile equilibrium of their surroundings, serving as a stark reminder of the consequences of disrupting nature’s balance.
The form and size of the installation is deliberately left open to interpretation, allowing for endless possibilities in presentation. Each of the wasps can be thoughtfully placed, creating a unique composition adapting to the space.
As a gentle breeze sweeps through the installation, the wings of these wasps respond with graceful, rhythmic movements, enhancing the sense of life within the art piece.
Previously exhibited at the Other Art Fair, London and Insect Odyssey Exhibition, Salisbury Museum, UK.
The wasps have metal pins from two legs allowing them to be placed on any drillable surface, giving the illusion of being weightlessly attached. A drill bit is included to assist with the installation as well as instructions.
