Artist’s comment: Untitled (from Hatchery) is made with ceramic pieces of Mary’s heads that resemble an egg. Each piece is individually cast and painted, making them unique and a copy at the same time. Based on Colombian popular culture, this work explores with humour the basic needs in our society, such as food, reproduction, and religion, from what we consider to be natural to our cultural creations. It addresses through seriality our ways of mass production and consumption, whether it is food, goods, or social media.
