Memory is elusive and the need to hold onto its
origins is always fleeting. This installation is
designed as a stage on which the viewer can become
an actor. Triggered by the viewer's approach, the
mirrored reflection of the painter transforms into
the turning of his back. Enacting the metaphor of
an uneasy marriage, Van Eyck's Mirror becomes a
signifier of the divorce that we, in the present,
experience with the distant past.
