Der Bien und der Garten

Video
English

Filmed in a shared artist studio space in Rotterdam, “Der Bien und Garten” follows the artist and beekeeper Bérénice Staiger, whose art and apiarist practices intertwine systems of care and attention. The camera oscillates between the movements of Bérénice – observing, inspecting, maintaining, harvesting, almost as a self-reflection; these gestures also mimicking the actions of the bees in the hive.

“The human bee relationship is one built on time, patience and revisiting.” — Aladin Borioli & Ellen Lapper
