While referring to the role of artists in society, Joana Vasconcelos ends up creating a game of concealment. Using 255 baroque bronze mouldings (designed and decorated by the artist) and 510 mirrors superimposed as if they were scales, she creates a surprising Venetian mask. Through a sculptural piece that adapts to both indoor and outdoor spaces, a dialogue is established with the surroundings. In turn, visitors who want to see their image reflected back are invited to discover that “there is only reflection when there is parallelism”, as the visual artist explains. Taken from the song of the same name, written by Lou Reed and performed by the Velvet Underground and singer Nico, the title also served as the theme for the solo show at the Guggenheim Bilbao.
