Your fivefold vanishing points, 2023
Five circular mirrors, positioned at the corners of an invisible pentagon, produce a surprising environment of multilayered, tunnel-like reflected spaces. Eliasson frequently uses mirrors to expand spaces and evoke a subtle sense of disorientation. When viewers stand within the circle of mirrors, they see themselves and the others around them in a subtly strange, new way, recurring again and again from unexpected angles. The different hues of the surrounding curtains correspond to the cold tones of the visible spectrum – blue to cyan to green. The mirrors re-mix the familiar progression, conjuring a series of colourful concentric circles, each with its own sequence of tones.
