Bread + Honey
(Art)

Bread and Honey by Honeyfingers.

(1 of 1) Bread and Honey by Honeyfingers.

The latest exhibition in the display cabinets on the ground floor of Hotel Hotel is called Bread + Honey. They are little beauties – twelve sculptural works made in collaboration between Italian artist Giorgia Mocilnik, natural beekeeper Honeyfingers and the European honeybee (Apis Mellifera). Yep we’re a bit bee crazy over here at the mo.

The works are made from bread and honeycomb.

Bees build comb on and make nests in lots of unexpected places: wall cavities in houses; compost bins; service pits in footpaths; and apparently on baguettes, pretzels and dinner rolls.

With these twelve objects the artists have gently, but deliberately, tested the adaptability of these animal architects by placing bread in the hives for the bees to attach their comb to.

The works highlight the intelligence of bees as architects; and the connection between bees and the food we eat. Wild and domestic honeybees carry out up to 80% of all pollination worldwide. Greenpeace USA estimates this as being one in every three bites of food we eat.

Notes

We’re installing on Saturday morning – come and say hi. They’ll be here until Sunday 20th March and are open to all y’all.

Series

Cabinets – With this project we invite curators, artists and designers to fill the cabinets on our ground floor with artefacts that document our existence and tell a story about who ‘we’ are and what is important to us.
