The Weight of
Ants (2018-2023)


Michele Allen is a multimedia artist whose practice looks at the relationships we form with the natural environment and each other. Her projects span several years working with communities in response to specific sites. Recent work The Weight of Ants in the World focused on an ancient woodland in the centre of an industrial estate, using moving-image, photography, text and archival research to bear witness to this rare ecosystem at a time of advanced climate change and species loss.
