The house of shadow


The house of shadow was made to accommodate shadow artworks. It consists of the workshop – gift shop and the exhibition. In the convention hall you can you can see sculptures made from trash, which when appropriately light, they produce recognizable shadow forms. The philosophy of these works of art approaches the diverse point of views, which you can interpret the objects, the situations and the facts. The “unpredictable” shadow of each work of art indicates the effort we have to make in order to understand whatever troubles us or whatever we take for granted.

That we look is always less than that we see. Every object, every situation, every fact have their own dimensions and parameters, which are not visible or easily perceptible. The shape, the size, the colour, the texture, the silence, the noise, the tension, the simplicity, the complexity, the brightness and many more… are factors that show and hide messages – thoughts, indicate ways, reveal new dimensions…

“I build on these thoughts. I make the visible invisible… see that which cannot be seen”

I was born.

… I have been growing up ...

… I will die ...

... until then, I will be creating ...
