In Light of Shadows

Friday 27th April / presented by James Hall

In Light of Shadows explores the concept of the shadow in both a literal and metaphorical sense, using material culture to interpret cross-cultural understandings of light and darkness. These displays are especially concerned with how people sense light and shadow, in order to examine how these dimensions of brightness and darkness reveal or conceal aspects of material and social life in conscious and unconscious ways.  The exhibition aims to elicit a human response to light, darkness and shadows as mediums through which familiar themes such as morality, mortality and memory can be identified.

Siti Sarah Ridhuan, the curator of the In Light of Shadows exhibition, chatted with James Hall on Artbeat.
