‘mirror costume’ by bohyun yoon, 2003 (live model, plexiglas mirror, brass, hinges, velcro)   

‘mirror costume’ by korean artist bohyun yoon expands on his earlier work ‘mirror mask’, developing the idea into a full body scale. the costumes are worn by live models who strap on mirrored panels made from plexiglas mirrors with brass hinges and velcro to keep them on. the mirrors adorn the face, chest and hips of the models reflecting their body parts back and forth. yoon explains the concept behind the piece, ‘I use mirrors for integrating reality and illusion. I use the human body as a metaphor for the people of contemporary society. my work poses the question: what is reality?’
