Gallotti & Radice

In collaboration with Arstübli Art & Culture

Milano, Italy

2023



For his second collaboration with Gallotti & Radice, 'Reflected Identities', the artist transferred his portraits from the rectangular pane of glass to perfectly round circular mirrors enclosed in a black lacquered metal frame. The slight change in perspective, material and form drove Simon Berger to explore new ways of creating and developing his technique. The use of a mirror as a surface for this collaboration removed the element of looking through and at the glass at the same time, as it did not allow onlookers to see beyond the material but relied entirely on the reflective surface. Layering an image on the mirror confronted the viewer with a comparison to their own image and evoked a strong juxtaposition.
