silver emulsion on mylar
33 x 24 in.
A sheet of glass. Where shall I put the reflective silver? On this side or on the other: in front of or behind the pane?
Before, I imprison myself. I blind myself. What does it matter to me, Passer-by, to offer myself a mirror in which you recognize yourself, even if it is a deforming mirror and signed by my own hand?
…Behind, I am equally enclosed. I will not know anything of outside. At least I will recognize my own face – and maybe it will suffice enough to please me.
– Claude Cahun (1930)
