Jeff Koons - Cracked Egg (Red), 21st Century
4 × 3 × 3 in
10.2 × 7.6 × 7.6 cm
Created over the years of 1994 and 2006, Jeff Koons’ Cracked Egg is comprised of mirror-polished stainless steel with a colored overlay. In terms of size, this piece is 39⅜ x 62⅝ x 62⅝ in . Similar to his balloon dog series, Koons’ Cracked Egg represents the temporal milestones of human life. Egg imagery is often tied to ideas of birth and fertility, thus illustrating the beginning of human creation. Koons refers to Cracked Egg as a “fusion of opposites” : a balanced harmony of the fleeting and the everlasting. Koons physically eternalizes the egg, an otherwise transitory object, by casting it in a hard, durable shell. The symbolic juxtapositions that underlie Koons’ work is what makes it intricate and multifaceted.
