Girls + Eggs / Krakers Cracow Art Week 2022
Girls + Eggs, June 2022
Only some of the girls in this show have eggs, but we have all eaten them. Eggs – soft boiled, hard boiled, poached, deviled, scrambled, over-easy, sunny side up, coddled – lovely, golden, tasty, wholesome eggs. Eggs: the socially acceptable abortion.
Boy asks girl: how do you like your eggs in the morning?
Girl answers: unfertilized!!!
There’s a girl in Texas on the run, chased by gun toting cowboys and cowgirls. This mob of Stetson-wearing vigilantes gallops after her, swinging lassos, kicking up dust, charging her down. Ready to corral. She’s a container of precious eggs. Eggs from God. Eggs that must not be broken. Fuck the girl, protect the eggs!
There’s a girl in Poland heading for Berlin. Nauseous, she rides the flickbus. The toilet is broken, her sickbag has split. She’s a container of precious eggs. Eggs from God. Eggs that must not be broken. Fuck the girl, protect the eggs!
Girls + Eggs is an exhibition in alliance with all these outlaw girls. Girls on the run. Girls who have run out of eggs. Girls with runny eggs. Some of the eggs have migrated. Some of the girls were once boys. Some are no longer girls. Some of the girls are still boys. Boys with mutated egg sacks. Testes are overcooked ovaries. Their eggs failed, fallen, dropped off the wall, like Humpty Dumpty. Oh dear! Whoopsie daisy!
