Fred Eerdeken‘s shadow art installations are quite extraordinary. His playful use of light and shadow using a variety of materials — from plants to wire to cereal boxes — to spell out words is not dissimilar to the work of Tim Noble and Sue Webster who also use shadow and light to create illusions out of everyday objects. It is no easy feat – to conceptualize and structure these puzzles – to create work that only works when you, the viewer, hit the right spot for everything to make sense.
I’d love to see them in a gallery they are beautiful, immaterial and full of humour.
