The Honey Gatherers

Ueber das Sammeln von Honig                         – The Honey Gatherers

Christel Dillbohner’s site-specific installation at SPACE, Los Angeles, February/March 1993


catalog essay by Michael Lawrence, Los Angeles, 1994

“…..The Honey Gatherers utilized approximately 3,000 square feet to investigate the various aspects of the ancient art of honey gathering.
Using a wide range of materials, the installation was a metaphor for the human condition of searching happiness. The search specifically focused on gathering and filtering experiences in order to better understand those experiences.
The installation also exemplifies the artist creating art, of finding momentary meaning in the continual flow of events.”
