Aganetha Dyck

Winnipeg, Manitoba
[Winnipeg, Manitoba, 1937]

Aganetha Dyck is interested in environmental issues, specifically the power of the small and inter-species communication. Her research asks questions about the ramifications all living beings would experience should honeybees disappear from the earth. She began her career working in a range of sculptural media that included wool, cigarettes and buttons.

Since 1991, she has been best known for her collaborative work with live honeybees, transforming common objects into ethereal and delicate sculptures. Dyck won the Governor General’s Award in Visual Arts and the Manitoba Arts Council Arts Award of Distinction in 2007.

The CCCA Winnipeg Artists Project was generously supported by the Winnipeg Foundation.
