Shadow Shrine is an experimental installation that has emerged from a photographic practice. In this exhibition the artist strips photography down to the bare bone elements of light, shadow and image. Inspired by Christian Boltanski's Theatre D'Ombres and traditional Chinese shadow play, this work imagines an offering and a theatre of demons and the dead. - Written by Virginia Rowlands
