Work title: Mirror/Zrcalo

Mirror. A reflection of our reality. Who we really are? Are we prepared to look ourselves in the eyes, to perceive our form and appearance? Just in the MIRROR! A phenomenon which each of us have noticed and each of us, to some extent, is part of- an assumed type of urban behavioural routine. Looking back in numerous shop-windows, polished cars, even in sunglasses of our fellow people refers to the fact of just how important our appearance is, and how big our desire to give express a pleasing form to others. This »benign social phenomenon« hides secret of egoism that lives in each of us. We are daily »bombarded« with all sorts of »outlooks«, «outfits« and ways of achieving the best version of the above mentioned appearances. THE MIRROR is just one of the tools to achieve this, but the only one that will give us the final word about whether we are ready for the world around, or not. That is why we are offering to you, with certain amount of sarcasm (typical for local humour), THE MIRROR- an object that should be recognised in the public eye as an urban structure by its »banal function and shape«. “Let''''''''''''''''s meet by the MIRROR”, “Let''''''''''''''''s look at ourselves as much as we want”, “Let''''''''''''''''s take a look at the» marvellous world« behind the MIRROR”. Let''''''''''''''''s not give false hope to merchants by stand in front of stores, “We won’t by anything, we are broke”. Maybe we should walk by/through THE MIRROR on the way to places which will make better our appearance on the inside-to theatre ,to museums, ,to galleries, to the cinema.

    The competition entry has only partly fulfilled the competition criteria. Although the effort invested is appreciated, the work does not qualify for the second round.
