Oeufs / Eggs
Belgian artist, poet and filmmaker Marcel Broodthaers (1924-76) loved Oeufs and Eggs, he used many of them as a subject for his paintings and installations in the 1960s.
We made a little collection out of some of his works containing Oeufs/eggs. These works, in white, are part of collections of various museum’s of modern art from allover the world. (see below)
“All is eggs. The world is an egg. The world is born of the great yolk, the sun.”
