December, we bought 750 free-range eggs, a good start.
Simmons made a series of films documenting what we did with them :

Lucas introducing the latest of her ongoing performance-based series ‘ONE THOUSAND EGGS FOR WOMEN’ in New York -
“I’ve always had eggs in my work. It started with TWO FRIED EGGS AND A KEBAB back in the early nineties, which was the piece of work that launched me on the world. Since then I’ve tried to keep an egg in things, in most exhibitions. Now this - a women’s egg throwing event, which I’ve done twice before, once in Berlin and once in Mexico. For women as I like to do things for women, because eggs are relevant to women …and they are finite. They are not like sperm, you can’t just endlessly wank and spurt them everywhere. So it’s kind of about futility, not just women’s futility, futility in the world.”
