The mirrors carefully cut and polished by hand explore the dichotomy between object and reflection. The works adorned with delicate silver glass bubbles made using traditional Venetian techniques represent the interplay of reflected image and original object, revealing the disenchanted impartial reproduction and the innumerable symbolic and moral implications attributed to it.
The frame of the mirrors and the design elements subtly interfere with the reflected image as the bubbles tentatively rest on the extremities of the mirror or softly collapse, causing fragments to fall beneath the precarious surface and to encroach upon the image.
In the second version, the reflective surface is thus erased, corroded and oxidized, resulting in a subtle disintegration of the faded reflection returned to the viewer. Only in this way does the intrinsically conflictual relationship between the indifferent witnesses and the secret confessors disappear within its own autonomous and often unsettling presence.
