Landscape as Muse

Manitoba Bees with Aganetha Dyck

2007Ep1524 mins

We join Aganetha Dyck in Starbuck Manitoba, where she is working with the bees. She is working at an apiary where she drops pieces of cloth into a hive. On the cloth, she has painted queen pheromones so that the bees place honeycomb only on the place she wants.

As we review some of her past works, she explains her artistic evolution from shrinking clothes to sculpting with honeycomb. The bees are her artistic collaborators and it is through their mutual communication that the works of art are formed. In her studio she shares her personal philosophy of art as she puts the finishing touches on some pieces.
