Christian Boltanski, Chance, 2011
A large room filled with scaffolding, the noise of chattering machines, the faces of babies hurtling past you on an endless strip. In adjacent rooms large LED signs count out the growing population of the Earth, one birth at a time. The message is clear: there are too many of us. Christian Boltanski’s installation called Chance is the official French representation at the Venice Biennale.
