The eggs and their caretakers
The works refer to the unstable and ever changing human condition as a stable continuity in life. Anything this unstable could use a bit of support, but nothing seems as uncomfortable as admitting you need support, or even worse, asking for it. The objects seem to have embraced the discomfort and are longing for (re)action or care in their form, materiality and context. A great amount of trust takes place in the capacity of others to notice the needs of the work and to act on it. By giving away objects to take care of I am creating a frame of thought together with the caretaker through which we can discuss and exchange experiences about caring. How much responsibility do you give someone when you give a gift and what are the rules of expectation and interaction? Can the object hold its intentions or question for care in itself?
