“Casting Shades at New Moon” stemmed from the multiple allegories around the moon as a silent and discrete observer, and the social and geological phenomena of its cycles. Featuring new works by artists Philip Ortelli and Sandar Tun Tun, who have been sharing research and nurturing reflections for several months, the exhibition navigates between the sensory investigation of bodies in space and the phenomenological experience of sound, shape and colour. From a visual and sound installation to wax sculptures, the works oscillate between fabulation, poetry and phantasmagorical worlds.
