Artist Peddy Mergui Blends Eggs with Versace


 

Fancy schmancy eggs anyone?  Artist Peddy Mergui blends eggs with Versace and he didn't stop there. He explores a range of sculptures that deal with superimposing different  'big' brands and food products. The packaging choices are so tactile - I can't help but imagine undoing the egg box and unwrapping each egg within. The packaging makes me imagine a parallel world where shopping is extra EXTRA fancy. What would the rest of this grocery store look like? For some people a box of eggs is a luxury item, I can't help but be reminded of this fact when I look at this piece.
