The word spiegelei is the German term for a fried egg served sunny side up, but literally it translates into English as mirror egg (spiegel=mirror, ei=egg). The title Spiegelei alludes to the body’s ability to interpret and misinterpret the world around it. It suggests processes of (re)production, mimesis, and examination that are reflected in the work, while gesturing towards a kind of absurdity and duality often found in Surrealist practices.
