MAY 18 - AUG 31
Take a closer look at the world of bees through the eye of artist Nancy Macko as she draws upon the honeybee society and explores the relationships between art, science, technology along with ancient matriarchal cultures. Combining elements of painting, printmaking, digital media, photography, video, and installation, her utopian artistry borrows beautiful imagery from nature to deliver poignant messages about the bees’ plight and our relationship with them.
The Fragile Bee examines issues related to eco-feminism, nature and the importance of ancient matriarchal cultures – as well as mathematics, and prime numbers, in which Macko attempts to make explicit the implicit connections between nature and technology.
