BEAUTY: Sculpture--Aganetha Dyck

These collaborative sculptures are the result of Aganetha Dyck and bees. Fascinated by inter-species communication, apiary, hives, and honeycombs, Dyck chooses ready-made porcelain figures for bees to coat with wax and build into their hives, pioneering a new art form known as "apisculpture." The result is a curious clash between the human world, and the insect world...which actually ends up seeming quite alien, ready to innocently obliterate the human world.

Take a look at this lovely short video about an exhibition at the Confederation Centre of the Arts on Prince Edward Island, featuring the work of Aganetha Dyck.
