Double Fly Egg No.1, 2015

The chicken or the egg was a question raised by ancient sages such as the Greek philosopher Socrates and the Chinese Confucian thinker Mencius. Double Fly Art Center poses this philosophical thesis about the origin of the world once again. As one of the late nine sages of ancient Greece, Double Fly does not leave any canon works. But their philosophical claims were discovered through documents and literature. Instead of explaining the origin of all matters in theological methodology, they consider “egg” to be the model of the origin of the universe. In Greek mythology, the goddess of love was born in an egg. In ancient Indian books, Brahma was born in an egg. The stories and totem of egg also appear in Japanese, Chinese, Slavic, Peruvian, Finnish and many other cultures. Such universal concept comes from the consanguinity recognition in the early phase of life’s consciousness. It is a view of the universe shared by all mankind. Physicists believe that all matters in the world came from the egg of the universe in a big bang. Chinese mythology of Pan Gu opening the sky and earth also supports this concept of the universe was born in an egg. Biologists think that the origin of species starts from the mutation of genetic chains in an embryo. Geographic discoveries prove that the earth is an ellipse with an inner core. Egg is the uterus of everything in chaos. It contains everything and starts everything. From void to being, from zero to infinite.

Double Fly sets up the first Double Fly Egg-crushing Tournament at Today Art Museum. The project is planned by Fu Xiaodong and supported by the Space Station. The exhibition will hold a series of games of contest. They will be like the Olympic Truce, symbolic of equity and fairness. The games will expel bias and troubles in the minds and rebuild the link of peace and friendship.
