About the exhibition
Hans-Peter Feldmann is an artist of international renown whose work revolves around the accumulation of images from anonymous sources or from photos he has taken himself. By illustrating the ubiquity of reproductions in the world around us, Feldman theorises the concept of the “missing original” in his work. In other words, it is the multiplicity of reproductions that gives the original its value, rather than the other way round. Shadow Play is a work at the crossroads between photography and cinema, environmental installation and theatre. It uses movement and light as a compositional element to give a poetic reflection on the countless ways in which images can be interpreted.
