Quick Hits – Hatchery

No, not eggs, although those are definitely egg cartons. Guess again. This is Hatchery, by London-based artist Viviana Troya, made up of hundreds of identical ceramic models of the Virgin Mary’s head.

This work explores the basic needs in our society, such as food, reproduction, religion and humour. I see different layers in the work that speak about the forces that glue society together – from an online interview.
