The Bee Kingdom (thebeekingdom.art) is a project by New York artist Joy Garnett. Drawing on materials left behind by her late grandfather, Egyptian Romantic poet Ahmed Zaky Abushady (1892-1955), The Bee Kingdom foregrounds alternative histories through creative writing, visual media, and social media, to ask how past, present, and future narratives can co-exist through the archive in its various forms.
