to bee or not to bee


October 1 – November 16

Whether the current colony collapse disorder should be an occasion to think of Albert Einstein’s allegedly expressed worry that “if the bee disappeared off the surface of the globe,then man would have only four years of life left” is questionable.  Yet for to bee or not to be, bee death is the initial spark for a renewed reflection on the relation-ship between humans and the environment; this is where our anthropocentric worldview is challenged.

Ten international artists deal with this problem, each in a different artistic way,ranging from purely conceptual to visual and alternative- pragmatic approaches. Almost poetic as well as firmly politically engaged strategies can be found  in the works displayed in the old manor house of Jeløya and its magnificent baroque garden, where Gallery F 15 is located. The central question of  this exhibition is if art is capable of formulating viable alternative concepts towards the existing world order—even if that means challenging itself.
