    About The Work

    A private re-presentation and reconsideration of the Graham Fagen’s childhood egg collection, this work is a personal account through which to reexamine the related social hierarchies, values and exchanges that this activity carries in the artist’s memory of a particular culture of collecting. Vividly presented and carefully ordered and labeled, this print is reminiscent of a museological display or educational didactic. The artist’s choice of color palette and orderly arrangement recalls the inside of a sawdust lined box or a collector’s cabinet of curiosities, meticulously annotated by hand. The choice of title is both playful and rather melancholic—an oblique reference to a private eulogy for his childhood collection—a formal tribute to something lost.
