About

 

 

The cat that observes itself.
It is absurd to find the photos of Aurélie Bayad absurd, as it is impossible for a cat to spy on itself. The nail is the rotation, or the mirror if you want. Because looking at his photos is as if we are a mirror ourselves.
The mirror does not know what it reflects, but this fact makes it absolutely objective. It reflects everything, also what is invisible.
The mirror is slow and cuts a part of the world, a part of Aurélie, which weighs itself in the mirror, in the world, in its universe.
