Jeroen Eisinga’s latest work art, Springtime, has been hailed as a classic in the making. In a romantic search about death and decay, he has made a video of himself entirely covered in bees, all 150,000 of them. The claustrophobic video was shot entirely in black and white on 35mm film and made in Ireland as no Dutch beekeepers were willing to participate in this project.
