“ Reflection of Choice” installation made for exhibition in Ludwig Museum in St.Petersburg “Gates and Doors “ 28 April - 20 June 2011
When the surface of the mirror is no longer flat, it also losses the ability to give a direct representation of reality. It transforms the picture of our surrounding and suggest us multiple interpretation and new choices.
Mirror represents doors-possibilities which we have to open during our life.but to choose to open one door at the same time you shoos to leave the other doors closed, I tried to express feeling of necessity to make constant choice and multiple realities we have to deal with.
This why I included different keys form unknown doors gathered by me wile i was traveling, captured in a glass bobbles- small invisible prison.Keys are present but unreachable, like all the possibilities we in theory have .
