The project for Manifesta 2 has been realized in collaboration with Frank Oudeman.
From our children we know that, apart from having tails, the Littles that populate the air-conditioning pipes look just like us, and from Woody Allen we know that even sperms are only human. Gulliver's Lilliputians are human beings, because they can be put into battle order. Nevertheless, some of the gnomes and goblins we know seem to prefer the company of ants, spiders, germs, bacteria and other demons, to any human order and cleaning phobia. You never know when they will attack you.
But where to place Sarah Sze's installations, the little herds and heaps of objects and video projections of groups of people filmed from above and projected in such a tiny scale that the viewer is obliged to look down at them, though they are obviously performing mundane acts?
