Manifesta purposely strives to keep its distance from what are often seen as the dominant centres of artistic production, instead seeking fresh and fertile terrain for the mapping of a new cultural topography.

"I am your mirror" consisted of a few hundred photographs the Austrian artist took of herself throughout the years. This large body of work faced the Canadian artist Ken Lum's work with mirrors. The third part of this project was a video of a self-portrait of Krystufek's previous stay in Luxembourg.
