This event has ended.

Hans Peter Feldmann's use of found objects often verges on the absurd, and "Shadowplay" utilizes this approach toward an uncannily romantic end. The piece is comprised of small figurines and household objects placed on slowly revolving platforms. Illuminated via crude self-made spotlights, their shadows cyclically carousel across the wall. Figures weave in and out of focus, morphing into one another in perpetually shifting combinations. Feldmann's endless fascination with finding euphoria in the mundane here manifests itself in a riff on shadow puppetry and cinema, as familiar objects become fantastic via a simple shining spot of light. As the turntables spin the objects around at varying speeds, disparate composites ebb in and out of each other. Slowly introducing themselves, crossing paths, then melting away, these ephemeral meetings seem to imply that every new relationship, no matter how entrancing, is doomed to fade into obscurity with everything else.
