Self Portrait Pregant with Fried Eggs

Spinning off of Sarah Lucas and her provocative 1996 Self Portrait with Fried Eggs using a body that is anything but androgynous. .

This is predominantly a work about consumption.
Just as Lucas expands on crude body/food metaphors to draw attention to gendered identities I thought I might draw attention to a gendered state, pregnancy, in this case. We often discuss and study the effects of marketing and resulting consumption of the female body by the media.  What of infants?  Babies, commonly heralded as a woman's creative pinnacle, could also be seen as the ultimate consumers of a mother's body through pregnancy, birth and breastfeeding.
