Aganetha Dyck stellt olle Porzellanfiguren in speziell angefertigte Bienenkörbe und remixt die Dinger zu Mensch/Biene-Kollaborations-Skulpturen. Nice!
In North America, Europe and many other parts of the world, bee populations have plummeted 30-50% due to colony collapse disorder, a fact not lost on artist Aganetha Dyck who for years has been working with the industrious insects to create delicate sculptures using porcelain figurines, shoes, sports equipment, and other objects left in specially designed apiaries.
As the weeks and months pass the ordinary objects are slowly transformed with the bees’ wax honeycomb. It’s almost impossible to look at final pieces without smiling in wonder, imagining the unwitting bees toiling away on a piece of art.
