Alex Lebus (presented by Eigen + Art Lab)

Alex Lebus repeatedly makes use of mirrors in her artistic exploration. In a wide variety she thereby creates reflections and "flashbacks" to reveal truths, to unmask and question the obvious. Her works are based on an intensive examination of the material of the mirror: She uncovers the aluminum layer of the mirror, scraps it off or applies paint. This process creates the motif of the open doors that expose the wall behind. By removing the mirror layers and the element of the open door, she creates spatiality and depth, which become tangible through shadows and light.
