Of Mirrors, Mirages and Reflections

Shirin Abedinirad’s stunning mirror installations defy viewers’ perception of reality, while also offering unexpected perspectives of the places into which they have been set.

Much could be said about mirrors and the different roles they have played in different cultures throughout the times.  From stealing souls, to showing the manifestation of one’s mind and soul, to doors leading to different worlds, they offer an endless field of speculation and challenge us to question our very essence and our inevitable frailty and transience.
