Mirroring the Musee

Mirroring the Musée by Adad Hannah was commissioned by the Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec in 2008 and is currently on view. The work is exhibited in the same room where it was produced. In this work the viewer is like a ghost caught between two mirrors, and there is also the issue of the posing spectators, visible in the videos and yet no longer in the gallery. See more;

"My models were all employees of the Musée, something I often do in the Museum works. To me it is interesting to recast within the museum people who work in the building every day, yet whose relationship to whatever works I shoot them with may be very different." - Adad Hannah
