Serena, the founder of Eggsite, reports to you from Cadaqués, Spain.
Salvador Dalí, a man who associated himself with a fish and who once posted his father a packet of his sperm to 'give back what was given to him' (otherwise known as one of the most famous and lucrative artist oddballs ever known to man), liked eggs. Eggsite takes a look one of his celebrated works, Eggs on a plate without the plate (1932).
Dalí often found himself to be inspired by intra-uterine memory. He claimed to be fully aware of his presence in the womb and was often aesthetically motivated by these memories. One cracking recollection was that of eggs on a plate without the plate and that is what he has here decided to evoke. While the pair of yolkers refers to the upper features of the female form, the hanging egg is evocative of Dalí himself in the womb. Eggsite approves of those who publically (and privately) self-associate with eggs.
Eight years later, after realizing that these deeply symbolic eggs had not been given any bread to perch upon, Dalí produced Two pieces of bread expressing the sentiment of love (1940). Eggsite leaves you to ponder upon this pairing as if you were an Andean flamingo in hunt of blue-green algae.
