one night in the window

As part of the E17 Art Trail I took part in a group offering in a shop window. Each night the window was dressed by an artist and literally would have it's night in the window.
"The night you broke my heart" was my instillation piece
inspired by the American artist E. Hopper. Based on a family secret the viewer was invited to look into a moment of heart break.
A memory sustained within an imaginary scenario,frozen forever within half stories,mythes and shadowy truths.
The dim lighted scene draws in the spectator,obscuring certain elements so to lend personal interpretation that could be open to further speculation.
The reflection of the viewer in the piece holds them in ceasing their voyeuristic role making him/her a part of the story.
