In the castle town Calcata, in the midsts of Italy,
every year around Eastern,

an exposition is organized with the theme ‘The Egg’, as the shape of the town is oval.

For this exposition I made an egg called: ‘The Egg of the Angel’.

 

"I have to lay an egg
I am tossing and tarying. Restlessly
Inside of me it is breeding and raging
an asexual reproduction
of what has no material
but only becomes visual
when it attaches itself to it
It nestles itself in one cell
Then it grows and developes a head,
a body, arms, leggs
And at his back, as if it were a bird,
wing together body and spirit,
not knowing which one to be
A high mountain carries my stead
Between heaven and earth,
as if I can not choose where to nestle,
I lay my egg down under the rays of the sun"
