Mirror/Window is the inaugural installment of a nomadic, integrative video art salon. The salon takes form at Louis V. E.S.P., a new exhibition space located in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, and scheduled to begin full programming this year.

Mirror/Window focuses on works that meditate on themes of space and architecture by investigating the relationship between public and private spheres, the body within space, and social codes embedded in architecture. The videos are trans-generational and transnational; spanning from a hotel room in Berlin to popular 80’s sitcoms, simulations of a model home to the iris of a human eye.

Presented in a two-channel facing format and running on a continuous loop, the videos are forced to both confront and familiarize themselves with one another, sparking new and unexpected dialogues framed by notions of place and indulged in by the spontaneity of moving image.
