Pierre Huyghe, Colony Collapse

Pierre Huyghe, Colony Collapse. It's hard to see, but the man in the middle has a colony of bees on his face and head.  As, you might expect, he's not Pierre Huyghe.  Suffering for one's art is all very well, but why bother if someone else will do it for you?  The potential sufferer was actually called Marlon Middek and the bees were the responsibility of beekeeper Danny Jöckel.
