    Artist Statement:
    Shadow seems to be a tacit part of our body which follows every tiny movement of us, yet, we seldom perceive it. "Shadow" can be interpreted in terms of its physicality, the psychological projection of our inner selves or the embodiment of multiple characters. Through capturing light and shadow, the three participating artists will inquire into the states of shadow, imagine and reflect the concept of "shadow" by hypothesizing the loss of it.
