SMELL of the HIVE

Title: Smell of the Hive; year: 2019; materials: wax, nectar, propolis, pollen and dead bees, Perfume creation, research at Open BioLab Brussels, 2019

a Bee is a Bee is a Bee. Becoming a Bee.
The perceived distance between human and nonhuman beings. The corroded edge between us and things.
Probe the boundaries of animate matter. New materialism, eco criticality.


‘La fragrance sensuelle d’une ruche d’abeilles en été, le parfum unique du superorganisme : bouillonnant d’activité, la chaleur de nombreux corps rampant les uns sur les autres. Notes délicates de cire, de fleurs, de propolis et de miel.’
