Honeyscribe: Bees and the Art of Pollination: 29 March–2 April 2016


Artist and curator Amy Shelton invites audiences to consider the crucial role of bees through an exhibition and education project that creates dialogue and exchange between scientists, artists, writers, beekeepers, school children and the public. The twelve UK artists in this exhibition re-evaluate our ancient relationship to, and reliance upon pollinating insects and reflect on the microcosmic poetics of the bee.

Over four weeks prior to the public exhibition over 400 Exeter primary school children have visited the Princesshay Bee Project and worked with Amy Shelton at Spacex, making artwork of their own and learning about these precious insects. Shelton’s project takes place at Spacex as part of the new Associate Programme.

Artists: Anthony Burrill, Clare Densley, Susan Derges, Tessa Farmer, Alec Finlay, Sarah Gillespie, Zsuzsi Morrison, Peter Randall-Page, Amy Shelton, Jem Southam, Nicky Thompson and Marcus Vergette.
