More information

Pistoletto achieved great fame in the 1960s for this type of work: a mirrored steel plate to which a hand-coloured photograph of people, animals or objects has been applied. As a viewer, you see your own reflection in the image, but you remain an outsider, as in this work with photos of two people in a queue. The effect is jarring and makes you think about your place in the world.
