Ghost hives by Valérie ChartrandSaint-Boniface, Manitoba
Visual Arts — Behind-the-scenes
Through the combined effects of viruses, parasites, fungi and pesticides, vanishing bees could eventually mean the end of a third of the world’s crops. The consequences of environmental manipulation and gluttony could leave us in a world of silent monochrome gardens where only the wind remains to fertilize dry grasses.
The state of apiculture is at a crossroads where a mixture of fear and alarmism is paralleled with hope, increased awareness and research. It is at this juncture that Valérie Chartrand takes the pulse and imprint of today’s bees. The imprints of bees from collapsed colonies take many forms including etching, cyanotype and photography.
