About Aganetha Dyck
Aganetha Dyck transforms everyday objects into delicate, fantastical sculptures that seem to suspend the passage of time. In her best-known series, “The Masked Ball,” Dyck employs honeybees as her unlikely collaborators. After selecting objects often found in dusty display cupboards or squirreled away in seldom-opened drawers, Dyck gives them to her bees to be festooned with diaphanous combs. Through the organic process, Victorian figurines and Chinese good luck charms morph into mystical, hybrid monsters or Rumpelstiltskin-like characters about to be woken from a 100-year sleep.
