Public Art Facilitator Cameron Cartiere’s and the chART Collective: For All Is For Yourself explore increasing sustainable habitats for bees that counter recent decreasing bee numbers largely due to disease, parasites, pesticide use and loss of habitat. Cartiere’s social practice includes her working with various Richmond communities to produce handmade seed paper (from recycled office paper) that is then laser cut into 10,000 “bees” that form the Gallery installation. In early December the public will be invited to return to the Gallery to take some of the bees away to plant in their own gardens – to create new bee friendly habitats while facilitating the nest to “swarm” out of the gallery. The remaining bees will re-appear in another exhibition at Kelowna Art Gallery in 2016, and all related events connected to this multi-year project are documented on the Border Free Bees website.
