Genesis – March to Infinity
Shadow art exhibition

Extension until 30/9/2022

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

* What are shadow sculptures? Works of art made 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 figures.
