Aganetha Dyck makes sweet organic art with live bees

Comments (5)

While UK artist Damian Hirst relies on little human helpers to assist him in creating his well-known dot artworks, Canadian multi-media artist Aganetha Dyck employ bees to create organic art.

Aganetha has been working with honeybees to create sculptures and drawings for over 20 years, the result being swirling honey comb sculptures and sweet drawings. Through her work, Aganetha - who is interested in environmental issues, specifically the power of the small - addresses language and communication between humans and other species, particularly bees.

Her research also asks questions about the ramifications all living beings would experience should honeybees disappear from the earth.

What do you think, is it the bee's knees?
