Furious about Antsee’s removal? Fret not. I just got off the phone with the artist, Kim Morgan. Apparently, she was contacted by the city and informed that the dead tree her aluminum ants were arranged upon had rotted out and was in danger of falling over. She was asked if it’d be okay for the ants to be removed and then replaced on another tree in Victoria Park. There’s even a chance that if the city can find some funding, they’ll be able to get her to make more ants to replace the ones that have disappeared over the years.
So, good news. Antsee has come down but it will be reborn. More details in the upcoming issue.
