Mirror mirror, Loreal Prystaj

Are these meant to look like dismembered female body dumps? I mean to say, is this meant to be a commentary on the casual way the female body is treated, and something about the duality of commodification and natural elements, returning to dust? I mean, do the mirrors attempt to convey both that when she is used, and the user tosses her away, she is both invisible, but also possibly a mute and expressionless reflection of his ego?

Because if that’s not what is being said, I’m a bit worried this artist might be a serial killer who hasn’t yet begun.

“There is no such thing as compromising with nature; we simply abide by how it lives and exist as a part of it. Nature is very relevant to each individual’s well- being, but more so than it is part of us, we are part of it.

Often times, mirrors are used to emphasize the minute details, but rarely used to look at the big picture. What if nature looked at itself? What would it see? What would we be? Would our identity stand out or would we be a small detail? Would nature change us? Would we be a beauty mark or a blemish? Accentuated? Concealed?

From observing nature’s schedule and landscapes, I placed myself in its environments while nature looked at itself in the mirror.”
– Loreal Prystaj

This is what I could find from the photographers website about these pieces.

That makes a great deal of sense and is much less worrisome, but honestly, given how pale she is, it just seems like a dead body. I am not very good with modern art.
