A set of staged images where a group of Beetles from the forests of Indonesia and the Philippines inhabit sculptures by Henry Moore, Emilio Greco and John Chamberlain. In this fictional dystopian future, migrations forced by ecological catastrophes generate unpredicted encounters in hostile environments. The fragile bodies of the insects are set against the heavy metal of the much-larger sculptures, the natural and the man-made, the dead and the living, the heavy and the fragile collide.
