Nijmeegse Schimmen, 2011

Shadowlamp
200cm x 80cm x 80cm
Wood, foil, cable

During the Artist-In-Community project I collected silhouettes of various 'users' and inhabitants of the City centre of Nijmegen: the mayor Thom de Graaf, the policeman, a choir of elderly people, individuals walking, sitting, cycling, some sex workers, students from Novio Magnus, some homeless people.

All those silhouettes I used in the Laterna Magica: a big shadow-lamp, which is turning around and projecting the shadows. That lamp was shown in the main police-office in Nijmegen and the public hall of the center of the community.

Take a look on the videos:

I see a strong link to my writings about traditional art form, as woodcutting. See here the article, the result of a research field trip...in 2009.
