Lakeside Bee Farm
In collaboration with artist Tomáš Libertíny, Lakeside Bee Farm has been constructed at the premises of Lakeside Capital Partners’ headquarters in Rotterdam.
By starting the Lakeside Bee Farm, a special project has been realized considering the importance of maintaning and growing the worldwide population of bees, which are recently suffered through colony collapse disorder. Lakeside Capital Partners’ management highly values and aims to contribute to circular economy, the environment, sustainability and arts & culture. The Latter, is being supported via the Lakeside Collection and Keles Foundation.
The long term relationship between the artist, Tomáš Libertíny and Lakeside Capital Partner’s Managing Partner, Ali Keles, created a fruitful foundation for this longterm partnership, which enables the artist to sculpture in collaboration with bees at the Lakeside Bee Farm in Rotterdam. Together with the engagement of renowned beekeeper, René Kant, the Lakeside Bee Farm’s colonies, which consist of approximately 300.000 bees, are being maintained.
Currently living and working in Rotterdam, through his art, Tomáš Libertíny continually explores the beauty and intelligence of nature as well as probing into the existential questions of the human mind.
