Cai Dongdong, ‘Shooting Practice’, 2015, Blindspot Gallery

The work Shooting Practice is comprised by a black and white photograph and a mirror; the image is reversed left-to-right in the reflection in the mirror, which creates the optimal illusion of the viewer shooting themselves with a gun. The artist uses the act of shooting as a metaphor for the photographic act and its inherent violence, while the reflection in the mirror reveals another dimension where photography is separated from reality.
