The mirror is a common theme in the work of Flavio Favelli. Once again, using strictly recycled material, this work is recomposed using dozens of black tesserae to create a compact but irregular surface. As its title suggests, this is a type of archive or file where each piece represents a recollection or a memory. In fact, it is true that memories are like the icons on desktop arranged in tight rows alongside one another, and to recall them – it takes no more than a click. In recomposing his memory the artist looks into the mirror (and is reflected) in this mirror-keyboard: and at this point it is the memory that poses us the question “How do I look?” while we gaze back at it, safely filed away in the mirror. It is up to us to provide the answer.
