Agenda


CASTING SHADES AT NEW MOON stemmed from the multiple allegories around the moon as a silent and discrete observer, and the social and geological phenomena of its cycles. Featuring new works by artists Philip Ortelli and Sandar Tun Tun, who have been sharing research and nurturing reflections for several months, the exhibition navigates between the sensory investigation of bodies in space and the phenomenological experience of sound, shape and colour. From a visual and sound installation to wax sculptures, the works oscillate between fabulation, poetry and phantasmagorical worlds.

At the beginning of every lunar cycle, the new moon aligns with the sun, casting its shadow onto the Earth which makes it appear dark and invisible. This feeling of appearance and disappearance lies at the core of the exhibition where various elements intertwine to let shadows materialize. Stemming from the image of the moon as a silent observer in constant orbit around the Earth, to which only one of its sides is shown, the artists invite visitors to look beyond and uncover these hidden faces. Entering another time and space, CASTING SHADES AT NEW MOON bewilders perceptions and senses, giving imagination access to new forms.

Through visual and sound effects, the artists create an immersive and unsettling environment, imbued with transparency, fluidity and shade.
