Aganetha Dyck's long-standing artistic practice is marked by a profound interest in the environment. Here she explores the ramifications all living beings would experience should honeybees disappear from earth. Together with her collaborators - the bees themselves - Dyck has created a diverse body of new work, including works combining cloth, thread, acrylic, ink, and honeycomb as well as mountings of a Braille version of a poem by Di Brandt incorporating bee-made chew marks. Aganetha Dyck received the Governor Generals Award in Media and Visual art in 2007. This publication includes essays by Darrin Martens and independent curator and critic Robin Laurence.
