Installed at the Auroras space in São Paulo

Auroras is an art space dedicated to artist’s projects. Created after extensive dialogues between Ricardo Kugelmas and artists, auroras serves as a space to realize unique projects outside of a gallery or institutional context. auroras does not represent artists; instead, the space collaborates with galleries to compliment their programs. auroras will foster an open dialogue between artists, critics, curators and the public with exhibitions, site specific projects, publications and talks. The space is open to the public.

The series “Measure of Dispersion” is comprised of sculptures and installations that aim to amplify and manipulate the spectator’s field of vision through the use of blind spot mirrors and a modular metal structure. It uses ordinary materials that are combined in different ways to reconfigure the apprehension of one's surroundings, and change one's own sense of location.

Rather than capturing a specific moment like a camera, the mirrors reflect a fragmented body seen from uncontrollable angles and different points in space simultaneously. The resulting viewer experience is a challenge to the impulse to project preconceived assumptions onto what we see: we are made to test our sense of familiarity with our surroundings and, more importantly, with ourselves.
