MAKI OKAMATO, DAVID TAYLOR
19 SEPTEMBER – 10 OKTOBER 2020
Mirrors have fascinated people for millennia. In the arts, the myth is told of how the beautiful Narcissus falls in love with his own reflection in the water and consequently loses himself by looking at himself: a habit we in modern times are all too familiar with. Throughout history, we have utilized everything from shiny water surfaces to various polished metals in order to catch a precious glimpse of ourselves.
Galleri Sebastian Schildt invited artists Maki Okamoto, Jenny Nordberg and David Taylor to explore the theme of mirrors. In the resulting group exhibition Mirror, mirror… these three artists are united in their practical and conceptual focus on mirrors and mirror images.
The exhibition Mirror, mirror… is part of Stockholm Craft Week which runs Thursday October 1 – Sunday October 4, 2020.
