Abstract

У статті досліджений спектр семантичних значень символу дзеркала в мистецтві та показана виняткова роль цього художнього образу в розкритті проблем ідентичності суб’єкта. Наявність різних модусів «дзеркала» (ціле, деформоване, розбите, реальне, порожнє) у творі дозволяє виробити уявлення про внутрішній статус естетичного суб’єкта в той чи інший історичний період. (The spectrum of semantics of mirror symbol in art and the significanсe of this image in disclosing problems of the subject’s identity are researched in the article. The motif of «a man in the mirror» is used to depict moments of self-reflection, introspection of character in works of art. It is a «mirror» becomes a symbol with the wide range of connotations related to human subjectivity and identity of the subject (an author, a character, a recipient). A «mirror» in art is allegory of self-knowledge, wisdom, selfrighteousness, selfishness, pride, lust, luxury, vanity, dissimulation, mimicry and even annihilation. The symbol of the person, who immerse himself in contemplation of his own «Ego» in a mirror, is a mythological character Narcissus. This image used throughout the history of art embodies many meaning and senses as well as the mirror. Narcissus is the highest expression of introspection, complete absorption in himself, egomania and absolute break with society The mirror also provides the subject with another, opposite possibility – to see himself among the others, compare himself with someone or something, and, therefore, to understand his place in the social or spiritual space. Thus, artists often represent character vis-a-vis a»mirror» to give him the opportunity to see himself in some context: in the context of his own life, in the context of ideal prescriptions or in the context of society. So the identity is acquired between these two positions – self-discovery, introspection and comparison, mimicry. The art via various modes of «mirror «(whole, deformed, broken, real, empty) demonstrates the results of such searches for identity and allows to develop the idea of the internal status of the aesthetic subject in a particular historical period.)
