Fabrice Samyn
Io Sono or Never

38 x 21 cm

A wall-mounted shaving mirror gives body and form to the classical Shakespearien question to be or not to be. On the surface and visible from both sides are the preserved, silver letters IAM, with the duality of the message bringing a multi-lingual play to life: in Italian, Mai means never, coded into its reflection is the English I am. One only needs to see the flip side of things beyond the mirror letting the light shine through, to consider reverse points of view, to move from I am to I am not—or never.
