BEYOND THE MIRROR at Clouste Gulbenkian Museum Portugal

"Beyond the Mirror, a title that deliberately alludes to the world of Alice Liddell, the heroine created by Lewis Carroll (1832-1898), is a thematic exhibition, which takes the mirror as its main focus. The intention is to show the polysemic presence of this object in the iconography of European art, particularly within painting, but also in sculpture, books, photography and film."



Eduardo Luiz (Braga, 1932 – Paris, 1988). 
“Alice’s hand [La Main d’Alice]”, 1983



"Mirrors are particularly interesting objects since they have the ability to transport us to other dimensions, leading us into the realms of spirituality, dreams, or even nightmares. 

Artists employ mirrors for various reasons, as they can both reveal and disguise elements of the scenes that are represented. They offer infinite visual possibilities including, most obviously, that of accurately reflecting reality."
