SOFIA ERIKSSON – BODYBUILDING MIRRORS. Young Swedish Design 2020 4 February - 22 March.jpg
Stockholm Design Week: Ung Svensk Form/Young Swedish Design 2020. 4 February - 22 March. SOFIA ERIKSSON – BODYBUILDING MIRRORS. Bodybuilding Mirrors is a play on the corporeal. I want to lure the viewer to come close, to meet infinite variations of their body in the reflection. In the shiny metal a new shape takes form, where reality and illusion are blurred.
A strong piece of craftsmanship that reflects a contemporary age where we see ourselves through digital filters and change appearance, at the same speed we used to flick through TV channels. A new kind of narcissism is emerging, a dysmorphic age of blurred boundaries between reality and unreality.
