AnneMarie Maes and the Brussels Urban Bee Lab create social sculptures that stimulate the development of a more sustainable world. For AnneMarie Maes art is life and life is ecological. She carries out long term projects – such as the Transparent Beehive, Urban Corridors or the Politics of Change. These projects lead to a stream of art works, interventions, experiments and books.
Her recent works focus on bee colony monitoring and urban agriculture combined with an interest for grassroots communities and DIY technologies.
The exhibition features innovative art science works by Latvian and Belgian artists, who are envisioning sustainable future scenarios with regards to food and energy.
The artists have used innovative methods to create sonic, visual and 3D representations of various environmental and biological data collected during their long term techno-ecological researches.
