A fried egg art installation has launched on the Underground…
Any West Londoners commuting into London may see something a little egg-citing today!
A new art installation has popped up at Gloucester Road station, featuring two 4m high fried egg sculptures. What could be better for that missed-breakfast hunger?!
The artwork, called “my name is lettie eggysrub” is by London-born artist Heather Phillipson, and takes over an 80m disused platform at the station. Pretty nifty.
It’s all part of Art on the Underground’s 2018 programme, which this year will be totally exclusively female artists.
The imagery explores the dual roles of the egg as a foodstuff and in biological processes. There’stomato ketchup and custard tarts, diagrams of chicken foetuses and egg sandwiches all on show.
As well as twelve video screens, suspended images and 16 printed panels, the display also shows a massive automated whisk.
The artwork will be on display at the station at for one year.
