" Shadowplay " at Louis Vuitton

In a unique event organized in cooperation with Louis Vuitton, German artist Hans-Peter Feldmann will be showcasing his famous light installation "Shadowplay" on a screen in front of the new Louis Vuitton Maison in Munich's former Residenzpost building. From November 19 and well into the next year, the art project will be on display for the public from dusk onwards.
In Hans-Peter Feldmann's work Schattenspiel ( Shadow Play, 2002), the artist places found toys, souvenirs, ornaments, household objects on slowly revolving platforms. Simple spot lamps project their shadow cyclically spinning around across the back wall. The figurines weave in and out of each other in perpetually shifting combinations, creating a magical world of shadows. Feldmann uses simple tricks to manipulate the found objects and give them a new life.
The original artwork itself is presented at the Pinakothek der Moderne as part of the artist's exhibition from November 19 2010 to February 2011. It was filmed in advance to be displayed on the outdoor screen of the new Louis Vuitton Maison.
Feldmann is widely recognized for his conceptual approach to books, photography, found images and other material.
