Looking at me, looking at you

Mirror Collection

Looking at me Looking at you, considers eye contact as a fundamental part of human social interactions and Fleming’s surreal semi-human sculptures play at the gaucheness of meeting a stranger’s eye. If someone is looking at you, it shows social interest or a possible desire to communicate, but of course you cannot know if someone is looking unless you, in turn, attempt to meet their gaze.  

At first approach, the chrome aluminium  mirrors’ reflection is alien and abstracted, but upon closing in, becomes intimate as each ‘face’ is adorned with a roughhewn sculpting plaster addition, gesturing to a flick of hair, a resting hand. Slowly the stranger comes much less strange, maybe even an acquaintance.
