Abejas de amor – new social art project by Juan Petry

“To bee or not to be, is a real question. (Juan Petry)” The artist has started a new social sculpture project in eastern spain. He offered people in the Maestrazgo region (Castellon) to mount some bee hives in their backyards.

“We want to give bees a social space for personal happiness. Our target is not to make money with honey, our target is, to develop varroa tollerant populations of bees and keep on pollinisation running in the region. Also we use the instinct and strategies of the european bee types to develop a live with varroa and also with chemical treatments of modern argiculture industries.”

The project is part of the activities of the living community familiafeliz and the free university of informal education (UNIIE).
