CURED EGG YOLK
Text by Felipe
Inspiration can come from the most unexpected places. Once, while Bia was testing recipes and techniques for this project, she decided to cure some egg yolks. After days of waiting for them to get fully cured, Bia finally showed the result to Anna and me, hoping we could help her come up with ideas for a recipe. Mesmerised by its intense hue, I was immediately intrigued to use the cured yolk in a picture. It reminded me of the sun on a warm Summer evening. Then, I decided to create an abstract landscape at sunset, drawing inspiration from Olafur Eliasson’s installation “The Weather Project”, presented in 2003 at Tate Modern in London.
The shape and colour of the yolk also reminded me of James Turrell’s work. The powerful way that he uses colour and simple shapes in his installations, inspired me to create a second picture.
