shadow art by fred eerdekens

private collection

the light and sculpture work of belgian artist fred eerdekens is, in its finished form, shadow images. each piece is crafted from materials
which have been altered by eerdekens in such a way that the observer is able to read his shadow creations. eerdekens has developed a portfolio in which every piece is light-contingent. the shadows cast from the sculpted objects spell out the meaning of each work, as if the artist also  speaks to the manifestation of fleeting memory. clipped phrases are formed from either the negative or positive space offered by a projected light interacting with the solid material. the resulting piece is one of a multidimensional message for the gallery goer– sculpture and significant language  joined to form the piece in its entirety.

a selection of eerdekens work is on display in ‘words and dreams’ beginning march 17th at magda danysz gallery in paris.
