Effie Vourie

"Food for thought We are what we eat. Our world has become what we think." Effie Vourie currently works with eggs. Eggs represent life (and so death), the smooth embodiment of the ovaries and the reproductive cycle. Hen eggs also mean food, nourishment and sustenance for growth. Effie's sculpture and installation often use natural materials; sometimes performances are staged in the natural environment.
During 2002 Effie focused on her performance work. Her video performance was shown in "Beckett on Vinyl", a group exhibition at the historic Mortuary Station, Sydney, as part of the Beckett Symposium in January 2003.
Effie is at present participating in South Africa's Thupelo Cape Town Artists' Workshop in February. She is looking forward to an unforgettable experience working with artists from a great diversity of cultures.
