Tale of the Bee. This new work by Jacob Kirkegaard draws inspiration from the now extinct and nearly forgotten European tradition; Telling the Bees, which involved informing bees about important events in a person's life or in the world by whispering or singing messages into beehives. According to the myth, as bees had access to the underworld and could act as messengers. The artwork Tale of the Bee flips the tradition and questions whether bees have something to tell us. Kirkegaard has made a 24-hour sound recording inside a beehive. The sounds of the bees are then printed on vinyl. The sound waves are ultimately transcribed back into panels of beeswax produced by the bees from the same hive. Part of the exhibitoon Super Organism at Munkeruphus, Denmark. Exhibition period: May 26 - Oct 20. Opening on May 25th.

LEAVING NO ONE BEHIND - A video compilation by Jacob Kirkegaard focusing on the voices and real-life stories of waste reclaimers

All films were made by Jacob Kirkegaard and produced by UN-Habitat, Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) and The Circulate Initiative. South Africa, Nigeria, Vietnam and India, 2023
The videos were premiered in November 2023 for an event focused on the voices of waste reclaimers.

What happens to it when it leaves our eyesight? How are cities and villages designed to get rid of it? And how can we optimize its reuse? Thinking in terms of digestion means thinking in terms of connections. Join us for a conversation centring on food waste and urban metabolisms, and hear about what happens to food waste - from packaging to peel.
