La Reproduction | René Magritte, 1937

Proposal: A reproduction of the Reproduction is printed on 1:1 scale tracing paper and sandwiched between two plexiglass plates. The setup is suspended from the ceiling and lowered to human height. The set is placed about 1 meter away from the wall, where a large mirror over 2 meters high from the ground is installed. This way, the visitor can see their reflection normally inverted simultaneously with the non-inverted reproduction in the mirror.
If a work embodies the artist's soul, does a mirror ever reflect the image one expects?
