This extensive catalogue documents the international exhibition project Shadow Play – Light and Shadow in Contemporary Art. On occassion of Hans Christian Andersen's 200th birthday the danish museum Kunsthallen Brandts Klædefabrik brought together literature and fine arts. The center of the project was “The Shadow“ from 1846/47. Andersen accomplishes a phenomenology of shadows, assimilating the various physical manifestations of shadows literarily and creating great psychological pictures.

Today in the age of disembodiment of information and image the shadow gets a new definition. The catalogue connects the immense selection of motifs of the narration with international contemporary art.

It collects 30 internationally working artists, among them Christian Boltanski, Olafur Eliasson, Fred Eerdekens, Dan Graham, Marcel Duchamp, Rebecca Horn, Per Kirkeby, Shirin Neshat, Sigmar Polke, Wolfgang Tillmans. With video art, film, sound art, photography and paintings the whole range of contemporary art is represented.
