Krystali Rebeni

From the outside, the small house in Krystali Rebeni’s “Silent Reflections” looks ordinary, though in miniature. But on the inside there is a surprising surrealistic drama in play that, dreamlike, shows an emotional and psychological transformation. The floor becomes water, papers and other objects behave unnaturally, leaving a lone woman to contemplate her circumstance in wonder. The reflection is different in the figure and the lamp. Is her reflection in the silent pool her younger self? Is it an alter ego? Will she reconcile different aspects of herself to take control of an interior that seems to be morphing into something else? Are natural forces at work reclaiming the interior-scape by beginning to dissolve the house? Why did Krystali make the scale like a doll house? Why is the outside world shut out by closed curtains? Does this scene imply that nothing is stable? Even when staying inside a home, hiding from the outside world, change still penetrates.
