EGGLIPSE

WHAT
A multitude of surprising and symbolic significations of the egg.

WHY
Inspired by the perfect shape of the egg, Caroline Cotto gave free rein to her imagination. She sees in the egg an invitation to contemplate ephemeral beauty.

HOW
After studying the shapes and colours through light and shade, Caroline put the egg centre stage. She made a book filled with observations of the egg as a shape, an object, and sometimes a character. She also conducted colour research in which she presented eggshells as skin colours.

QUOTE
Eggs have inspired a multitude of ideas, myths, beliefs, art, religions, recipes and concepts.
