Domus Apis Melliferae et Domesticae (House of the Honey-Carrying Bees Belonging to the House)
‘Domus Apis Melliferae et Domesticae’ is a series of three sculptural beehives. Working with the ideas of minimal art and architectural models, the artist has created these pieces in precious European walnut wood to elevate these simple architectures and give the sense of ‘welcoming’. These structures were actually home to bees throughout the period of an exhibition in Chur, where they were installed under the colonnade of the Kunstmuseum. Afterwards they have been exhibited mounted on bases recycled from commercial pallets, evoking the interdependence of the economy, culture and the natural world.
