What is the shadow? What does it reflect, contain and hide? The installation exhibition titled “Life Portrait 5 – Inclined Shadow” by Tran Duc Quy offers a reflection on the relationship between a subject and its shadow, their interactions, its stretch or shrinking based on the sunlight.
“It is impossible to imagine how my flat black shadow transforms in the sun. Sometimes my shadow looks exactly like me and talks to me. What would happen if I became the shadow of the shadow that had become myself? How should I behave? How could I incline without falling?…”
