Mīror [to be astonished at, to wonder at, to be amazed by, to admire, to contemplate with respect.]
An installation of three reflective sculptures based on a study of image, optical illusions and altered perceptions. Mīror , commissioned by Building Gallery, explores the specific moment in which one is captivated by a form, a detail, a reflection or one’s own image. Visitors are invited to engage with the space, gravitate around the object presented to take a look at themselves and reconstruct their own portrait, admire the sculptures from different perspectives and then be absorbed by the installation once more. Three mirrors, but also three empty spaces and three geometrical forms, to experience and discover from different angles.
Mīror is a new project that dialogues with a selection of textile works created by various twentieth century female artists, chosen by The Ladies’ Room in collaboration with the Moshe Tabibnia Study Center.
Reflected in the mirrors designed by The Ladies’ Room, visitors will be able to admire the colorful swirls of the refined French tapestries by Sonia Delaunay, the rugs by Yvonne Fourgeaud, the vibrant patterns of the carpets by Nathalie Du Pasquier, the Futurist fabric inlays by Beatrice Santiccioli and the poetic small-scale compositions of Niki Berlinguer and Anna Maria Del Drago.
