Women and Mirrors

Maya Manz

I repurpose old mirrors, by putting a lot of women in them I’m delighted to participate in „capitalism over“, because my work has always been that, through recycling and a respectful approach towards materials and people. The mirrors I use are to be thrown away, those are not the antique ones. The pictures inside them are images that I found here and there, on the streets, as advertising or in a rumpled book in some forgotten basement. They are unique pieces, with the aim to restore life and honor to the materials. In this case, they are also a gift to all women.
