Q & A

can you tell me why the egg is bad?
is it genetic disposition to being disagreeable or otherwise problematic?
or is it a not edible kind of bad?

The reasons I ask are
1. because of my sister, once, but no longer.
2. bad experience with expired produce.

Eggs are highly problematic. The egg lays at the heart of all world’s problem. In addition to this, if you buy the egg, I can almost guarantee you that it will not be edible by the moment it would reach you.

Artist Statement:

We live and create in an industrial society where the economic forces of gentrification, rising rents and precarious employment are all combined to crowd individuals into spaces that seem simultaneously constricted and porous. Nature would be circumscribed itself to small parks, plant pots and veggie drawers.

Building upon urban household waste and packaging residual, the work tackles issues of growing and the philosophical idea of beginning. Symbol of creation, the egg is an old, preserved one, received in the mail. Also, the work explores the intersection between photography and representation, as it is based on the (re)photographing and (re)printing of the original image.
