Exhibition Photo Description:
AVPD Sphere, 2008 1000 m wooden fillets (dimension 1x2 mm), glue diameter approx. 55 cm Exhibition: Visibilities, Union Gallery, London, UK Credits: Photo © AVPD 2008 Stalker The main work Stalker is a new installation which unfolds as a segregated sequence of four connected corridors. Inside the installation four huge mirrors are positioned in angles creating an endless 360o reflection in each of the four mirrors. The reflections in the four mirrors conflicts with the reflections of a single mirror. Instead of observing one’s mirror image the subject perceive oneself from behind as he/she is a another person, standing behind oneself. The subject observe oneself as another subject. In other words the subject is forced into the role of being the one’s own stalker. Apart from being one’s own observer the mirror reflections forces the subject to observe all other present subjects in the installation and simultaneously being observed by them. The installation becomes a performative space. Because of the segregation of the corridor system and the uniform aesthetics the mirrors become the only differentiation by which the subject can navigate. The 360 degrees reflection creates an endless repetion of the four corridors. This condition triggers the perception of the subject in such a way that he/she cannot point out where other present subjects in the installation are positioned, which again intensify the perceptive experience of observing and being observed.
