Item description for Albert Oehlen: Mirror Paintings by Albert Oehlen & Katja Hesch...
As Albert Oehlen points out, artists have often depicted mirrors. But in this case he's built real mirrors into each work. With them, he collages the real space in front of the painting with its pictorial space, at once subverting the glass's iconographic significance and inviting the viewer into the picture--only to throw him back out again.
