appliqué quilt

"PROTEIN" refers with the motif of fried eggs to "Self Portrait with Fried Eggs" (1996) by the British artist Sarah Lucas and addresses feminist issues regarding equal work in general as well as specifically in the field of art. The production technique, using traditional textile handicraft, also plays with attributions. The work was created during the first lockdown in April 2020, while an all-societal displacement of the relations between paid work, care work and education took place and the question of the value of work on the different levels gained a new urgency.
