Withstanding a swarm of over 250,000 bees, Daredevil Dutch artist Jeroen Eisinga transforms himself into a living shroud of buzzing insects in this spellbinding, monumental film performance. The unstable, flickering image draws to mind a host of rich and varied art-historical references, from medieval portraiture and 19th-century freak show catalogues to Andy Warhol and Richard Avedon. Springtime will be shown alongside a suite of rare, never-before exhibited photographs.
Presented in collaboration with MOCCA, 952 Queen Street West. August 24 to September 16.
