Bee-Jewelled. Found dead bees and Copper Sulphate

IMG_1361 IMG_1362 IMG_1363 IMG_1365 IMG_1366

This work was inspired by the depressing news, released this week,  that explains the massive die off of bees. Bees it would seem, like some kind of airborne swarm filter feeder,  concentrate environmental  pollutants,  like pesticides and fungicides,  and this makes them hypersensitive to a natural parasite called  Nosema cerenae

With a nod to Roger Hiorns and to Ballard’s “Crystal World”, this work reflects the ability of bees to concentrate environmental chemicals and highlights fears for their extinction.  

Dedicated to Regis Cochefert who doubted me.
