Exhibition on the Use of Shadow Opens at Kunsthal KAdE
Ellis Gallagher, Ludlow Street.
AMERSFOORT.- From 18 September 2010 to 9 January 2011 on show at Kunsthal KAdE, the exhibition 'ShadowDance'. 'ShadowDance' is a group exhibition featuring work by more than thirty visual artists, all operating on the international art scene and all fascinated by the effect of shadow. The exhibits will vary in terms of content and form. The common denominator will be the use of shadow – and more particularly moving shadows – as a crucial means of visual expression. The artists use shadow as a metaphor for a range of (sometimes heavy-weight) themes: time - alter ego - evil - death. But the shadow phenomenon also inspires more light-hearted work involving the creation of illusions and shadow ‘play’.

At ShadowDance the electric light goes out for a while as, with an imaginary candle flickering in your hand, you are drawn into the sometimes dark but also whimsical worlds evoked by the art. ‘ShadowDance’ is the first major exhibition about the use of shadows in art ever to be staged in the Netherlands.

The catalogue that has been produced specially for the exhibition includes an essay ‘The Shadow’s Hole’ by Edzard Mik. ‘Shadows appeal to us. They stimulate our imagination, feed our fears and desires. They follow us, stay with us, move ahead. They imitate, mock and deform. They scare, obscure, make us virtually disappear, sometimes deliberately, sometimes not, and in more frivolous moments hint at another, supremely fleeting existence, in which nothing seems important except the shape they happen to have taken.’

The catalogue also contains a flipbook animation by Tomas Schats and an anthology of quotations and extracts about shadows, from Plato to Peter Schlemihl and Lucky Luke.

Thirty-six international operating artists: Vito Acconci (USA), Charles Atlas (USA), Dirck van Baburen († NL), Aram Bartholl (DE), Christian Boltanski (FR), Jim Campbell (USA), David Claerbout (BE), Haim Elmoznino (IL), Mounir Fatmi (MA), Ellis Gallagher (USA), Hanna von Goeler (DE), Samuel van Hoogstraten († NL), Mella Jaarsma (NL), William Kentridge (ZA), Ralph Kistler (DE), Germaine Kruip (NL), Couzijn van Leeuwen (NL), Gabriel Lester (NL), Zilla Leutenegger (CH), Mark Lewis (UK), Rafael Lozano-Hemmer (MX), Wolfgang Munch & Kiyoshi Furukawa (DE & JP), Serge Onnen (FR/ NL), Lotte Reiniger († DE), Viviane Sassen (NL), Tomas Schats (NL), Hyo-Jung Seo (KR), Teresa Serrano (MX), Conrad Shawcross (UK), Sam Taylor-Wood (UK), The One Minutes (NL), Dimitri Vangrunderbeek (BE), Kara Walker (USA), Andy Warhol († USA), Diet Wiegman (NL).
