"Egg Collective is proud to present, In All Things a Trace, featuring works by Jane Yang D’Haene, Taylor Kibby, Nick Fagan, Motohiro Takeda and Arnout Visser. Whether drawn to the energy of heritage, alchemy, repetition, or use, each artist’s work explores the notion that objects are capable of resonating with traces of lives lived. In this way, the works operate as vestiges of what was as well as suggesting the creation of something new.
Arnout Visser blends a deep understanding of material and historic process with the magic of chemistry. Arnout Visser’s glass blown mushroom lamps rely on a humorous interpretation of the age old technique of glass blowing. Calling to mind both the principles of the Bauhaus and the material pleasures of Venetian glass. In this duality lies both the work’s connection to history and its link to the contemporary."
