Adrian Paci’s “Per Speculum” (a phrase which literally means ‘by means of a mirror’), refers to the 
tradition of picture making, in which the differences between representations of the visible world, 
and the world itself, are exposed. Paci’s work is an allegory in which seeing the world ‘per 
speculum’ - through the mirror of the artist or the artwork - does not necessarily yield a perfect 
reflection.

9 photographs

The series of 9 photographs „The Encounter“ shows a man, who places a chair in the middle of a 
public square. He takes seat. Gradually, several hundred protagonists enter the square and 
approach the seated man in order to shake his hand. The simple and habitual gesture of the 
handshake is repeated so often that it transforms itself into a meaningful ritual. While the reason 
for the ceremonious meeting remains unknown, the encounter between the participants becomes 
charged with tension. A moment of connection occurs, not only between the persons, but also 
between the participants and the square, which is transformed into a stage. The work was 
produced in the town of Scicli on Sicily.
