Genesis – Art of Shadow Exhibition

Genesis – Path to Infinity
Shadow art exhibition from 1/11/2019 to 30/6/2021

NOESIS presents a different exhibition based on shadow art. It consists of shadow sculptures *, which follow in time the creation and evolution of the earth, as well as the course of man on it. The sculptures are made of various materials, many of which are recyclable and follow the time periods of history, from Prehistory to the 21st century. It is an enjoyable educational process, a journey through time and the evolution of the earth and man. Through the shadow sculptures the visitor understands the “perspective”, not only as a physical parameter, but also as a philosophical one. The general philosophy of Shadow Art is that we can look at a situation, an event, an object from many angles and draw different conclusions (even the opposite) each time or see different images, the comparison of which can be determine our final point of view. In this way, the visitor, and especially the teenagers, are provided with the appropriate means to discover their world, their personality and their unique way of thinking. At the same time, there is a short video screening, which analyzes how to make shadow sculptures.

* What are shadow sculptures? Works of art from garbage and recyclable materials are properly illuminated and turned into shadows on the walls. These are sculptures that at first glance look amorphous (they do not have a specific shape), while when illuminated by one (or two) unique points they produce recognizable representations or forms.
