The mirror transforms the course of light in order to angle it toward a different destination, shifts points of contact, knots and unknots traditional pathways and relationships.
Ruby Kammoora is a practicing artist based in Melbourne. Currently, her work aims to document the body in its relationship to deeply conceptual concerns, deconstructing and reintegrating the traditional dichotomies that plague philosophical and artistic discourse.
The mirror makes possible impossible spatial connections within the traditional field of the flat plane: hidden connections are revealed and concealed, made and erased.
The mirror redoubles the world, makes it reflexive, implicates our bodies in space in all directions, displaces our centrality as the only frame of reference and then reaffirms it with narcissistic force.
The mirror is always pointing; to somewhere, to something – elsewhere – always returning to us the image of the Other, even (especially) when it is our selves who look directly back.
