Artist: Jeroen Eisinga

Known for his short films, video installations and photographs, Jeroen Eisinga (Dutch, b. Delft, 1966; lives and works in The Hague) combines the conventions of centuries-old portraiture and cutting-edge performance art in the harrowing video “Springtime” (2009­–2011). The single-channel, silent, black-and-white work is a fixed view of the artist as he is slowly enveloped by a quarter of a million bees and is open in the Black Box space in the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C.
