Shadows

What exactly is a shadow? Is it light tracing an object or the shape a body throws when it comes between a light source and a surface? Is it a metaphor for the intimate, darker side of a persons nature, the unconscious side of ones self, where daemons and secrets are kept hidden or repressed? Is it an allegorical place or state of being, somewhere between darkness and light, living and dying? Or is it a state of illusion, like Platos cave? Is it a verb that means to follow or accompany, or even to spy on?
Shadows, a new collaborative series by Alexandra Grant and
Keanu Reeves, explores the real and symbolic nature of the
shadow as image and figure of speech. Grants photographs
capture Reevess shadow at times as a silhouette and at
others as traces of light as he and the camera move together. In transforming the images into color and reversing light for dark, Grant has made the shadows themselves the source of light. Reevess texts, written in tandem with the creation of the images, give voice to the multiple manifestations of the shadow: as a projected figure, a place of concealed emotion, and an invocation to shadow play.
