Trends in Contemporary Art: MIRRORS/ REFLECTION


Random thoughts on the use of mirrors as a strong trend in Contemporary Art.

I am not referring to internal reflection, I literally mean: Reflection.

Mirrors play on the viewer’s vanity in order to engage them, but at the same time it’s almost impossible to see oneself when the viewer is too close to the reflection. Fragmentation occurs. Rather a hyperfocus

I want to try to work more with reflexive materials.

Great piece by the renowned Anish Kapoor shown at Art Basel Miami 2012.
