NORBERT BISKY | MIRROR SOCIETY

SAVANNAH COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN, GEORGIA
28 FEBRUARY – 1 AUGUST 2022

In MIRROR SOCIETY, Norbert Bisky presents a series of recent works uniquely collaged with canvas from previous paintings that have been slashed and reapplied to mirrored surfaces. These composite arrangements deconstruct Bisky’s figures into fragments of torsos, limbs, and faces violently intersecting with abstracted bursts of saturated colour and the mirrors’ fractal reflections. The viewer is confronted with half-hidden, half-revealed images of beautiful youths including their own gaze, trapped in a voyeuristic feedback loop. With these current works, Bisky comments on the narcissism of a society deeply engaged in the production and consumption of a dizzying onslaught of images in viral media, seemingly unaware of the violence and turmoil happening around them.
