About this artwork

At home the woman stood at the hall mirror and looked herself in the eye—not to see anything special but as a way of thinking about herself calmly. She spoke out loud: “I don’t care what you people think. The more you have to say about me, the freer I will be of you. Sometimes I have the impression that the moment we discover something new about a person it stops being true.”

—Peter Handke, The Left-Handed Woman (1976),
quoted by Teresa Gierzyńska in a 2017 exhibition of her work
