Hélène Fauquet has explored the range of mirrors and frames that people sell through Austrian auction and home decoration sites. The artwork is a found photo printed on dibond, knowingly keeping the original low quality. In a recent gallery exhibition at Meyer Keiner in Vienna Fauquet hung a group of pictures of decorated glass windows, printed on simple wooden panels.
The digital dust that remain on the concave bubbles lining the mirror frame, forms an anonymous reflection of the renaissance, much like Jan van Eick's 15th century experiments, and speak of our own relationship with online imagery.
Projects include Schiefe Zähne, Tokyo; Édouard Montassut, Paris; Christian Andersen, Copenhagen; and Kunstverein Nürnberg.
