This is a short preview of "Egg Stock", a performance and performance for video project created for "This Could be the Place" a project curated by Bojana Videkanic and Ivan Jurakic at the University of Waterloo Art Gallery in association with Contemporary Art Forum Kitchener and Area (CAFKA, 2014). The full running time of the short film is just under 10min.
Egg Stock is a durational performance in which a business woman holds court on the golf course. Caddying two giant ovaries filled with 400 eggs, she tenderly places each egg onto a tee before swinging at each with an iron grip. At once visceral and absurd, the performance probes notions of gender, sexuality and fertility while addressing the mounting social expectations placed upon women.
