Amer Bakšić “Silhouette and shadow”

Summer Garden Ćulhan (Sarajevo)
August 30, 1997


The work consists of an installation and a performance. On one of the walls of the Ćulhan, there is a white triangle in front of which is placed a black Plexiglas silhouette. By day illuminated by the sun, and at the night by spotlights, the silhouette, in fact, its shadow, changes and moves, alive on the wall. The performance is also thought of as a movement, this time by live silhouettes. Spot light first create a silhouette of the author’s body, then, anyone who would like to participate can project his shadow in the narrow Ćulhan passageway.
