Woman With Mirror

Curham & Ihlein were aware of the idea that Sherwin could not carry on performing Man with Mirror forever. Motivated to ‘carry on and extend the tradition’ Curham & Ihlein considered documentation an unremarkable end, and instead designed a DIY brochure for recreating a new version of Man with Mirror that was historically inquisitive, experiential and incidentally unisex and utopian.

By nature of the work, Sherwin’s Man with Mirror has become a dialogue about the passage of time as much as it is about the considerations of challenging the core aspects of the medium—space, film, frame, reflection. Curham’s & Ihlein’s ‘doubled’ re-enactment articulates contemporary concerns about representation and access to learning, and provokes questions of recontextualisation and abstracted historicism.
