Solo exhibition A Chamber of Mirrors, The Netherlands Photography Museum, Sittard, NL

21-05-1994 t/m 26-06-1994

Exhibition curated by Reinhold Misselbeck, curator for photography & new media of the Ludwig Museum, Cologne, DE
This installation is composed of photoworks and photo-sculptures from the series : The Garden of Illusion, Melancholy, Japan and Metamorphosis, made in the period between 1984-1994

/…/ A Chamber of Mirrors, the title of her exhibition at the Nederlands Fotomuseum in Sittard, refers to the frequent use of mirrors in the work. Apart from being a vanitas symbol, the mirror is also a theatrical attribute. Mirrors are elements to structuralize space, they take possession of it. … The photographs are sculptures, which is not suprising considering her initial education as a sculptor. /…/

Melancholy 1989-1990
Collection Museum Het Domein, Sittard, NL

/.../ Painted expressionist elements return in Melancholy, but now in a more stylized form. Human figures seem confined by geometric and crystalline structures. The mirror turns up several times, referring to the tradition of the trompe-l’oeil, the illusion of space in art. Ziach’s inspiration for Melancholy came from the geniuses of art history, Albrecht Dürer, Leonardo da Vinci and Kasimir Malevich. Like Ziach herself, these artists were captivated by the ambivalent longing for the unity between mathematical order and absolute emotion. Malevich’s black cross for instance, is composed of five squares which are to symbolize pure emotion. Ziach’s Black Cross of Malevich is a lyrical adaptation of this painting.
