Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to explore the potentiel of the egg as a primary material in a creative and therapeutic process. My research is introduced by an historical study of the use of the egg as a daily object as well as an art object. We will discover, on a folk and sacred level, the myths, customs, traditions and beliefs related to different cultures. We will study the physical and symbolical structure of the egg by comparing it to the cell, the body, the language and the atom as well as studying its symbolical and analogical values. We will briefly look at the theory of Guillaume and Bohr that will support the hypothesis that the egg incarnates creation as well as mystery. A last part of my research includes a personal research centered on the artistic exploration of the egg as a primary matter. This will allow the understanding and the integration of the essence of the creative processes put in perspective with images that reveal the dynamics that the egg engenders
