Where Do Babies Come From? by Riya Chandiramani

  • Medium:
    Acrylic on Wood with Perspex Box
  • Size: 30.5 cm (W) X 47 cm (H) X 8.9 cm (D)
  • About the piece: On the front of this reimagined cereal box, a woman holding a husk of corn rides Cornelius, the male cockerel mascot of Kellogg’s Cornflakes, away from the willow pattern scenery. She is independent, finding freedom, embracing her own nature away from society’s expectations of her.

    On the back, a multi-headed and armed goddess is perched on a lotus, showering children beneath her with the nourishment they need. Her energy permeates all of us. She is the provider, creator, and sustainer of the universe. The characters 我们 wǒmen meaning “we, us” play with the english word “women” – representing that women create us, women require freedom to do so, and this answers the question that titles the piece.

    The words down the sides of the box, replacing the ‘nutrition facts’ on traditional cereal boxes, come from signs that are traditionally displayed on doors each new year to usher in prosperity and fortune.
