This selfie captures three works by Italian artist Ugo Rondinone, ‘what do you want?’ (mirror and audio track), ‘If there were but desert. wednesday’ (clown model) and ‘all MOMENTS stop here and together we become every memory that has ever been.’ (fibreglass tinted window). All works from 2002, exhibited in the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Australia.
The eeriness of this room is overwhelming – when I walked in, I was thankful I wasn’t alone. Later I did visit the gallery on my own. The clown lies sleeping, though I sense he is watching me. I keep catching my fragmented reflection in the mirrored wall, and all the while the audio from ‘what do you want?’ is asking me – what do you want?
