In collaboration with New York and Connecticut beekeepers, I produced Bearded Lady pure wildflower honey. Over the course of a summer I built up antibodies to bee venom in order to perform a bee beard in which thousands of honeybees hung in a swarm from my chin. The piece is has been shown as both a video installation in museum cafes where viewers can buy jars of honey and as a gallery installation.
