Christopher Chiappa: livestrong
New York's Kate Werble Gallery is transformed from an all-white exhibition space into an area filled with 7,000 handmade fried eggs oozing down the walls and dispersed across the floor. 'Livestrong' by Christopher Chiappa began when Chiappa became infatuated with the symbolic function of an egg and how something that is meant for purity and resurrection is disfigured and mangled when fried. It's the idea behind how something meant to live can turn into a droopy, broken and dead form.
The design of the exhibition began in his studio with drawing and photographs which then lead to materializing into a sculptural series. The forms are made through a carefully calibrated process of casting, pouring, sanding and painting plaster, refined into a uncannily hyper-realistic sunny side up sculptures.
The exhibition will be running until January 9, 2016.
And... That's it!
