paris: kiss room

© david zagdoun

paris-based hungarian artist mathias kiss has a thing for deception of the artistic kind. he masterfully crafts site-specific installations that play with artistic codes and our perceptions while also reworking form and the functionality of objects to his own personal vision. his current installation, dubbed kiss room, is a space covered in no less than 1,000 square mirrors where the visitor can live, sleep and find and, in a sense, meet oneself. the setting is sparsely furnished with just a bed, chair and desk, also covered in mirrors. the objects' primary colouring makes them the only certain thing in the room and act as a point of reference for the visitor's imagination. location: 78 rue vieille du temple [marais].
