Shadow Dancing

Words

Diet Wiegman creates a bit of different sculptures by arranging piles of rubbish which, when lit in a special way, result in producing a perfect shadow of Michael Jackson, Michelangelo’s David or other persons and objects on the wall. He is working with this unique art form since he finished his studies in 1965. Wiegman received international recognition for his installations which has been copied by others throughout the years. With his art he creates a world of illusion and reality that invites the viewer to look at so-called ordinary objects and situations in a different way.
