Sculptural installation part of 'Pandora's Box' group exhibition at P7 Gallery
Conventional bad luck, and broken mirrors. Contemporary accidents.

Never done and never fully undone
Unbreakable because it was designed broken in the first place
     If this unity ever breaks it would just feed its history
     Reassert its destiny
And so, this non living object comes to life
     and celebrates everyone who comes inspecting
     giving them back their own light, their own reflection, their own reality
     whilst also projecting it elsewhere, for you, or for no one
It responds only to the desire to look, enchanting like water for Narcissus
It is nothing by itself but broken pieces of reflections, a past that once was one and now is many
Fractions and refractions, slices of the present tied together with epoxy resin
     Failing to reason
Bad luck some warned, bad luck stored, but yes indeed
(ominous clouds, black cats, the numbers 13 and 4)
Broken mirrors with all their bad reputation, danger
     stored, frozen in time, chained, dominated, displayed
     behind a safety fence of glass
Allowed to give us only what we present them
     ourselves
Given a box and told never to look inside, Pandora cannot control her curiosity and opens it, unleashing evils on the world. But one thing remained hidden in the box, which could be the cure to all the ills released: Hope.

In the l ast few years, it’s felt like Pandora’s Box has been open. Our societies have been shaken by global health crises, diplomatic instability as well as environmental challenges.

In a world experiencing such turbulences, it is the role of the artist to tell and create narratives that will foster new ways of being and give hope to the new generations to embody change.

Berlin artists have gathered to offer a new twist on the Greek myth. Beyond Pandora’s Box stages journeys of healing and narratives of growth from moments of doubt and challenge.

Each piece will stage a radical transformation from one’s body and spirituality through the finding of Hope.
