Opening on Good Friday, Concert In The Egg is an exhibition and celebration of the symbolic form of the egg, taking place at The Ship, London. The show takes as its inspiration the sixteenth century painting of the same title by a contemporary follower of Hieronymous Bosch. The work shows a group of characters taking part in an improvised concert inside a broken egg-shell and plays on the allegory of the 'Ship of Fools'. Like the egg, the exhibition intends to bind life and death together in a viscous and visceral goo.

Specially commissioned for the opening evening is a new performance‘Spring Is The Future’ by Daria Martin. From 7.30pm.
