Jennifer Robin Angus (USA/Canada) »The Necklace« – Installation
The Necklace is a site specific installation based upon ideas developed from the Brothers Grimm story The Queen Bee. In this story, the hero is set three tasks one of which consists of collecting 1,000 pearls which lie in the woods under moss and belong to a princess. The hero beginning the tedious and seemingly hopeless search is aided by the ant-king and five thousand ants. Before long, the little insects have collected all the pearls and put them in a heap. The Necklace alludes to the mystery and unknown lives of the thousands of creatures that reside in the forest mostly unseen or unnoticed by the human eye.
