“Magic Mirror” in two historic buildings of Hydra

1 min read

Wilhelmina’s art gallery, located on the island of Hydra, presents from 17 June to 21 July the group exhibition “Magic Mirror”, curated by Wilhelmina von Blumenthal and the artist Irini Karagiannopoulou.

More than 30 international artists present paintings, sculpture, photography, installations and works on paper based on the mirror and its symbolism. “The Magic Mirror” is a set of reflections and counter-reflections that escape the narrow boundaries of logic. The works converse with each other in unexpected ways, creating a psychedelic puzzle where truth and illusion on the one hand collide and on the other identify. As the two curators note, the exhibition focuses on the artists’ ability to both reflect and distort reality.

The exhibition will take place in two historic buildings in Hydra that are connected by the sea – and a boat ride lasting about ten minutes.
