The illusion of race has taken on a life of its own. We continually create it and re-create it in our social lives, and in doing so we give it meaning. Inspired by her own background as an Afro-American/German multiracial, Maya Ellerkmann challenges the stereotypes that are built around skin colour. Each mirror frame varies in form and colour, yet together they become a vision of unity. No matter what external appearance we may have, the mirror exhibits each of us in the same way. With Complex/ion Maya invites us to take a closer look at our own reflection and question if our skin colour truly holds any more principle than that which we view in the mirror.
